Rickmansworth Sailing Club to toast money for new facilities
The Rickmansworth Sailing Club will celebrate receiving more than £50,000 in grants with a drinks reception at the club.
The event will take place in Troy Lake on Sunday, September 23, after money was given to the club for new facilities.
The grants include £32,000 from the Sport England Inspired Facility Fund, and £10,000 from The National Lottery Sport England Fund.
The larger grant will replace old pontoons, used to get in and out of boats, with a modern plastic modular system and also towards the cost of re-decking the main access bridge.
Two new dinghies, which will allow local people to try sailing and have sailing lessons, will be bought with the £10,000 grant topped up with additional funds from the club.
