Barnes Bridge Ladies 20th Birthday Party!

Wonderful 20th birthday celebrations at Barnes Bridge on Sunday, with a vets outing (oldest athlete 81) a sit down lunch, a birthday cake and a boat naming on the lawn.

Even the sun came out to wish us Happy Birthday!  In April 1997 the Civil Service Ladies RC became BBLRC and to mark the anniversary we were honoured to be joined by our Civil Service Ladies alumni – truly inspiring athletes  who raced at the very top at the very beginning of Women’s rowing; Liz McVeigh – joined by Misha the bear – and Rosie Mayglothling (GB Women’s VIII 1980), Jackie Darling and Chris Grimes (World Championships 1974) to name just some – all paid tribute to their fellow club members, bearing witness to the great spirit that has been nurtured and continues to grow at the heart of this club.
