After the floods: Rebuilding Ross RC

British Rowing’s Facilities Service Co-ordinator Alan Meegan, tells the extraordinary story of how Ross RC ‘built back better’ after a devastating flood, which completely destroyed the clubhouse

His case study outlines how the club’s officers, members, friends, supporters and others pulled together to work with the club’s insurers and to demolish and rebuild an upgraded replacement rowing club building. Even more impressively, they achieved this while fundraising and working through the Covid pandemic and its consequences on building contractors and the national shortage of materials.
