Rotarians have donated £3,100 to buy a new rowing boat for the King’s Lynn Sea Scouts.

Whilst the TS Vancouver, near the Hanse House, already has a boat, the number of cadets able to use it at any one time was limited.�

The new rowing boat will accomodate eight cadets, which will double the present number of youngsters who can get on the water.

Local King’s Lynn historian and rotarian, Dr Paul Richards, asked King’s Lynn Rotary Club if it could help.

Community services chairman Steve Roberts recommended that rotary should provide a significant amount of money to make the purchase of a new rowing boat possible, and it was he who presented the cheque to the sea scouts’ president, Paul Bland, recommending that the rotary club should visit TS Vancouver to witness the launch.
