Rowing club’s 175 years

TWO celebrations were held to mark the 175th anniversary of Henley Rowing Club.

On Friday 200 members and supporters of the club attended a ball at Phyllis Court Club.

Guests included rowers from every decade since the Fifties as well as representatives of each of the club’s crews to have won at Henley Royal Regatta.

They enjoyed a three-course meal followed by dancing and posing for pictures. There was also a silent raffle and an auction.

There were three guest speakers, Henley MP John Howell, Annamarie Phelps, who chairs British Rowing, and Jeremy Randall, the president of Leander Club and Master of the Company of Watermen and Lightermen.
