Bedford Rowing Club made 'Pioneers'

The club has been awarded 'Pioneer Explore Rowing' status to encourage more people to try the sport.

With the help of grants from British Rowing and local donations the club has bought six new stable boats which will be used to run introductory courses beginning next month. Bedford Rugby players were among the first to try the new boats.

The President of Bedford Rowing Club Mike Perry says it's about getting local people involved.
