A Statement from London Youth Rowing CEO, Matt Rostron: 

London Youth Rowing hope that the current situation around Chiswick Boathouse and Hounslow Borough Council can be resolved quickly. We have been running the Junior Rowing Programme at Thames Tradesmen Rowing Club for several years.

We have applied for, and been granted a license from Hounslow Borough Council that allows us to access the boathouse so that we can continue to run our programmes. Our focus remains getting young people from the local community active through rowing and we are glad that we are able to carry on with our summer learn-to-row courses this week.
