The "semi-detached" boathouse is a partnership project with the Cambridgeshire Rowing Association (CRA), providing purpose-built facilities for Camrowers and boat storage for the CRA. See <a href="news.html">here</a> for more on our official opening, including Camrowers' octogenarian row past. <br></br> At last Camrowers has changing rooms, showers, toilets and space to enjoy hot drinks, as well as rowing machines and proper boat storage. The new boathouse will enable the club to expand in the future with more members and more rowing sessions <br></br> We are indebted to everyone who helped us raise over 300,000 to fund the project. Members of Camrowers themselves raised over 100,000. Sport England's Inspired Facilities Lottery Fund kick started the project with 75,000 in September 2015 and in March 2016 Cambridge City Council stepped in with Section 106 Developer Funding of 250,000 - shared between Camrowers and the CRA. Camrowers also had grants from the Garfield Weston Foundation and Persimmon Homes. <br></br> The whole building, housing the CRA and Camrowers, cost 670,000 and was designed by Architects Saunders Boston and built by contractors Millcam. </font> </div> </td> <td width="3%"></td> </tr> </table> <table> <tr> <td align="center" width="5%"></td> <td align="center" width="90%"> <img src="photos/logosall.gif" width="90%" align="absmiddle" vspace="15"></img> </td> <td align="center" width="5%"></td> </tr> </table> </td> <td align="right" valign="top" width="25%"> <table width="100%"> <tr> <td align="left" width="100%"> <a href="photoframes/bhnew002.html"> <img src="photos/bhnew002.jpg" alt="click here for photos of our new boathouse" width="100%"></img> </a> <font color="black" size='-2'><b>click on photo to see club's new building</b></font> </td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left" width="100%"> <a href="photoframes/boathousesite10.html"> <img src="photos/bhnew004.jpg" alt="click here for photos of our boathouse site as it is and was" width="100%"> </img> </a> <font color="black" size='-2'><b>click on photos of our boathouse site as is and was</b></font> </td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left" width="100%"> <a href="photoframes/historybuilding12.html"> <img src="photos/bhnew003.jpg" alt="click here for photos of our boathouse being built" width="100%"> </img> </a> <font color="black" size='-2'><b>click on photos of our boathouse being built</b></font> </td> </tr> <tr> <td align="left" width="100%"> <a href="photoframes/bhnew011.html"> <img src="photos/bhnew011.jpg" alt="click here for photos of our new boathouse" width="100%"> </img> </a> <font color="black" size='-2'><b>click on photos of our new boathouse</b></font> </td> </tr> </table> </td> </tr> </table> <table width="100%"> <tr bgcolor="orange"> <td align="center"> <font size="+2"> quote - "yes, I can still 'do' sport/fitness!" </font> </td> </tr> </table> </div> </font> </body> </html>
