Official launch of Brentford Boating Arch
Big congratulations to Brentford FC Community Sports Trust who are celebrating the launch of phase 2 of Brentford Boating Arch, EDGE’s first home, today 13th May 2011.
The arch has been in operation since 2008 but has recently undergone a £69,000 capital refurbishment programme funded by The London Marathon Trust and The Veolia Environmental Trust. In addition St George West London Ltd have invested a further £15,000 into new drainage systems.
Since its launch over 5000 participants have taken part in sessions operated by Brentford Boating Arch. The project incorporates a classroom, showers and changing facilities and aims to encourage more people to experience sport, leisure and education on the Thames.
Here’s to a fun-packed new paddling season with…hot showers!
