Newquay Rowing Club Need Your Vote

Newquay Rowing Club is the oldest club on the gig rowing circuit

Established in 1921, based at Newquay Harbour, NRC provides Newquay and the surrounding area with recreational and social opportunities.

Regular social and charity events are organised throughout the year (not just the rowing season), when friends old and new get together.

The club needs to extend and modernise its meeting and gig storage facilities and has applied for a community award from One Family but they need your vote if they are to win their bid and they only have until 3rd November for your vote to count.

Please see details of their bid at One Family and give them your vote.

Please don't delay. They need your vote now.
