Last night at the District Council Meeting Rushden Chichele and Kettering RC were jointly given the District Community Award for the successful completion of the Grafham Water Sailability Cabins project. Our two clubs were the prime movers although it was Alan and Chichele who saw it through to the end and Alan did the time-consuming hard graft. There is gossip that the project
is being put forward for a National Award. (You may remember it was given a special award by the Royal Yacht Club earlier in the year.)
Alan will bring the enormous shield to club in January when he returns from his walkabout in Australia. The RIBI president spoke about membership at the meeting and said some sensible things.
