Welcome to the Broxbourne Rowing Club website! We are friendly rowing club with a fine fleet of boats, a fully equipped gym, and a modern, spacious club house with a bar. We row pretty much undisturbed on a delightful stretch of the River Lea. We compete vigorously and successfully in local and national races and welcome all including senior, masters, beginners, juniors, and recreational rowers.

If you haven’t rowed before, the sport provides full-body outdoor fitness, stimulates your senses and challenges you physically. There are few things as exhilarating as rowing at full pressure in a well synchronised crew. We run regular Learn to Row courses for juniors and adults to set you on your way.

If you are a more experienced rower, you will find a racing crew to meet your aspirations, whether you want to compete at Henley, in the masters world championships, or national and provincial races.

Some prefer to enjoy recreational rowing and our touring boats travel far and wide on long weekends away, or compete in pageant-spectaculars like the Great River Race.

We also welcome aspiring and experienced coaches and coxes. These vital members of the club have the opportunity to make a real difference to the crew. Inexperienced or new coxes will receive support, training and coaching and are unlikely to be short of crews to practice with!

If you are interested please get in touch with the club.

Been clicking around looking for quotes (at @ThamesTradesmen's suggestion) and came across this, which sums it up perfectly for me:

"Rowing provided a place to go, a community where people cared about what I did and what I achieved."

Large number of stolen bikes have been recovered in East Herts. Sharing.in case anyone has been a victim*** UPDATE ***

We have received several calls into our control room following this post being issued yesterday.

We fully understand that people will be eager to be reunited with their property but please bear with us; it will take us some time to correctly process the vast number of bicycles which have been seized.

As soon as we are able, we will be making attempts to reunite the bicycles with their owners and updates on this will be posted in due course.

We would politely request that people please refrain from calling into us in the meantime.

Many thanks for your cooperation 🙂

More than 65 bicycles 🚲, which are suspected to have been stolen, were recovered during a warrant in Hertford on Tuesday (4 August).

Officers from the East Herts Scorpion 🦂 team carried out the operation at an address in Mead Lane, after intelligence was received about the handling of stolen goods.

Detective Inspector Ben Freeman, who oversees the local Scorpion team, said: “This was an excellent result and we’re hopeful we can reunite these bikes with their rightful owners in due course.

“Enquiries are continuing at this time to establish how the bikes came to be at the address.”

A man was arrested following the warrant and has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
