Ebchester Rowing Club


  • The Club was formed.
  • 1974
  • The Club held a crisis meeting at the Chelmsford Arms to discuss its future, due to dire financial straits, and few members. The outcome was not to wind the Club up, but to introduce recovery measures. Bede College and Durham ARC had Ebchester boats in their possession which they agreed to refurbish. An appeal was to be made to the local council to take over the buiding and lease back to the Club. It was agreed to hold two regattas during the year. Durham ARC agreed to pay the Ebchester ARA fees. Subscriptions were to be increased to 2 per annum.
