Official Opening of our new Facilities!

Lord-Lieutenant Michael Kapur OBE, the official representative of His Majesty The King for the county and city of Leicester, cut a red ribbon to mark the occasion of our official opening, alongside Mayor of Charnwood, Cllr Jennifer Tillotson, and LRYSA President Keith Lynch.

LRYSA President Keith Lynch praised the tremendous effort of the volunteers who had made the project possible. He said: “This has been a long journey for us to achieve the opening of this building and boat yard and I’d like to thank all of the people who’ve been involved.”

The LRYSA previously operated from a muddy compound with a collection of sheds and a Portaloo, with no electricity or running water. We are now able to run our activities from a gravelled boatyard with a modern clubhouse, which includes a large classroom, changing rooms and showers, disabled access, and a smaller training room with a kitchen area for catering.
