The site is now completely clear, ready for piling work to commence in the new year. Demolition took much longer (and cost much more) than expected because of several finds of asbestos in the building. We had commissioned a full demolition asbestos survey in advance but they failed to find several areas of asbestos and inevitably finding these during demolition causes delays and costs.

During piling our main risk is that vibration from the piling will cause concern to the gas company. We have installed vibration monitoring (itself a delay and extensive cost) and the builders have considered how to manage this so we should be OK. Once that is done, actual building can commence.

We are running a few weeks behind schedule - the asbestos delays meant that the piling company could only come in the new year not before Christmas - but should be complete in late summer 2014.

We regret to report the death of Mr Ercolani, DSO, DFO. He was a Vice-President of the club, local furniture maker and wartime pilot.

Updated: This event is sold out.

Those who knew Trish Clark or her son Peter may be interested to know that there is a bench dedicated to her memory in Higginson Park, near the statue of Sir Steve Redgrave. Trish frequently volunteered to help out at regattas and other events, and from that bench you will be able to see those events taking place.
