When did the club start?
The Club was formally launched in March 2015.
Why did the club start?
To bring together model boat enthusiasts creating a pleasant social environment, and enabling members to share ideas and offer advice and assistance to others covering all aspects of model boating.
The promotion of goodwill and friendship with other clubs and societies within the region is an important aspect.
The opportunity to join a local boating club offering good facilities and location with the minimum of cost to each individual is an important part of the Club Constitution.
What are the ambitions of the club?
The Club hopes to play an important part in promoting the hobby of model boat building and / or sailing and welcome newcomers of all ages to the hobby. Help and advice will always be available from Club Members, so newcomers will have the opportunity to learn new skills.
The Club would especially like to extend a welcome to less able bodied persons to participate in the hobby, and having very good access to the Lakeside this would hopefully encourage disabled persons to enjoy model boating.
The Club will be run on a not-for-profit basis, but will offer support to various charities to raise funds by either inviting a charity group to "Special Event" days at the lake or supporting them at local events with static displays.
In particular we will offer our support to RNLI (Lifeboats) and the Royal British Legion, but other charities will be welcome to ask for the support of the club.
