Fleet take to the river

Last Tuesday, Stuart and I visited Gravesend Sailing Club where we attended the weekly drill evening with our new community partners, the Gravesend Unit of the Maritime Volunteer Service.

Stadium update 10.09.2016

Some 15 weeks ago we witnessed the demolition of the Liam Daish Stand with its host of nice memories over a long period of time. But that was the past and now we look to the future.
