Marlow RC Gets £500,000

Yesterday, the Maidenhead Advertiser website wrote that Marlow Rowing Club, which was badly damaged by fire on 3 August, 2011, has received an insurance settlement of nearly £500,000.

The club’s chairman Peter Hunt said that the club will be “back to normal” in about 18 months’ time. Read more here.
