Folks,

We are 3 months into the subscriptions year and majority of Subs have been gratefully received. We do need to remind any members who have not paid their Subs as yet, that from the 1st July the Constitution precludes you from making use of the Club until such time as you have paid your Subs.

The season has gotten off to a great start with plenty of activity on the water and about the clubhouse. Lets keep that level of enthusiasm going into the events planned for the rest of the Summer, including the following;

Sunday 7th – 13th July – Skiffieworlds 2019
Friday 19th July – Open Social Swim
Friday 26th July – Member come & try a different Sport Evening & BBQ
Friday 26th July – Boat Club Session
Sunday 28th July – Erskine Bridge Trip
Saturday 3rd August – Clyde Swim
Friday 23rd August – Open Social Swim
Saturday 31st August – Tail o the Bank Kayak Race
Saturday 21st September – Castle to Crane Race

Three years ago our club celebrated its 150th birthday.

Time has passed and club members have moved on in their lives but, if like me, you remember what a part Royal West played in your early life this message is appropriate.

So, what is the message?

Simply put, it’s to appeal to you to contribute to the funding required to celebrate the history of the club in a tangible way, by commissioning & installing a bespoke stained glass panel internally across one of the windows in the bar area of the club.

One of the Club’s sub-groups has been working on this idea for some months and local man, Alec Galloway, a well-respected worker in stained glass, has been commissioned to design and construct the window. Alec is one of the pre-eminent workers in stained glass in Scotland and has enthusiastically taken up this project. It is well worth checking his web-site to see the quality and range of his work. http://www.alecgalloway.net/2about.html

Having seen the early sketches I can report that the window will greatly enhance the bar area and remind us of the heritage of Royal West.

The sum we have to raise is £3,500 and your contribution to this would be greatly appreciated

If you donate £50 or more you will get an invitation to the formal ceremony to unveil the window. A donation of £100 or more will see your name inscribed on a board adjacent to the window.

Many thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you’ll positively respond to this appeal.

Best wishes

Hugh Kerr
