The Molesey Community Rowing Centre celebrated its official Grand Opening with Sir Steve Redgrave conducting the ceremonies on 3 April 2016
Development of the centre, including an eight-seat rowing tank, 250 sq. meter gym, offices and crew room started in 2014. It was officially opened yesterday by 5 times Olympic Gold medallist Sir Steve Redgrave, supported by members of the Molesey Boat Club and Councillor Jan Fuller, Mayor of Elmbridge.
