The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead's planning committee today (16th Jan) agreed to grant planning permission for the new building (and delegated the power to do so to a member of RBWM staff). Aside from building related issues the final planning consent is conditional on agreeing flood risk mitigation with the Environment Agency, which we are confident we can do. This is great news for the club and is a major step forward in our plans.

In the New Year Honours list, two MRC members have received sproting honours. Katherine Grainger has been awarded a CBE following gold in the W2x at the Olympics. Naomi Riches an MBE following gold in the MxLTA4+ at the paralympics. Congratulations to them both.
The Club needs to raise £400,000 to ensure that the new clubhouse and world class facilities can be built next year. We already have a small team of people who are working together to meet this challenge by seeking funding from a range of sources as well as organising a calendar of fundraising events.
However, we need three others to join us who bring a range of specific skills to the team.
