The club was born from a meeting between the famer, (Richard Renfrew), Mike Legg and Derek Nelson in 2002. During that year development took place – a hole was dug!!! and an area set aside for further development was identified.
In February 2003 an inaugural meeting was held. Twenty-eight individuals turned up and twenty-two expressed an interest in joining a Model Boat Club. We elected a Chairman (Mike Legg); a Treasurer (Mike Gaffney); a Secretary (Derek Nelson) and two committee members (Pete Munday Snr & Pete Munday Jnr).
Over the years the club has grown and developed. We now have over seventy members – a Club House, Toilet and Bad Weather Shelter.
