Slaughden Sailing Club celebrates clubhouse improvements achieved with £75,000 Sport England grant
A Suffolk sailing club is celebrating the completion of better clubhouse facilities with improved river views.
Members of Slaughden Sailing Club gathered on Saturday to officially open the new clubhouse, funded with £75,000 from Sport England.
The club, which aims to make sailing enjoyable and affordable for the community, has been working for years to achieve the improvements.
“This was quite an achievement in face of a lot of competition for the limited funds available and involved a large amount of work by club members,” said the club’s commodore David Eaton.
Club member and architect Philip Morphy drew up the plans, which include larger changing rooms, improved river views and more storage.
