In Brief ....

Defibrillator - click here for info.

Locks - members use their key in the 3rd padlock down on the gate by the dam and should remember the door combination. Before leaving the club please be sure to lock anything you unlock! The combination lock (4th lock down) on the first gate is for use by visitors and its code is changed regularly. Visitors - please see Contact Us page to get the gate combination. Also worth registering on our shoutbox - please post a message to see when others will be there for you to get full access.

Webcam - Click on the icon in daytime and give it a few seconds to appear, but please don't leave it running very long. When several people are logged on at the same time the image will play less smoothly. If it's not working it'll probably be that the battery is drained.

Board Slots - for more information see John Lymer or click Board Slots.

Invasive species - it's easy to avoid transferring these if you sail at locations other than Watergrove. Next time you sail, please dry your kit off in between use and preferably for more than 48 hours. There are non-native mussels and shrimps that can otherwise be spread. See here for more.

Good decision, Roads have not been gritted here and I didn't want to miss the AGM as I havn't missed one for 30 years.

AGM POSTPONED! We’ll let you know a new date when we have one.

Hello all,not looking great in the Oldham area snowing at the moment drifting around me I think it's a health and safety situation I'm all for cancelling the AGM too risky.

Dave B - 17/03/2018 - 18:26

Water and electricity are working fine again thanks to Andy Pepper. The boiler may not be working though, due to water damage. We'll update if/when it's fixed.
