Throughout Falcon’s history the Club has never had its own clubhouse. As part of our 150th anniversary we set a goal to have plans and funding in place to finally be able to build one, giving us somewhere to train, socialise off water and support our wider community activities. After some incredible work by a group of members, donations from large numbers of club users, funding boading and very generous individuals, construction was able to begin in September 2020.
We still need to raise a lot more money to fit complete the building and we can't do this without your help. See below or read more here.

How can I donate
Sport England funding of a new touring boat (May 2019)
Thanks to a Sport England grant which enabled the purchase of a new touring boat the club is now able to deliver beginner and return to rowing courses to a broader spectrum of rowers in a lightweight coxed touring quad. Following the successful reintroduction of Covid-safe rowing in singles and household doubles we have now been able to resume limited crew boat activity. The additional boat means that Falcon can continue to offer touring rowing to existing members whilst also introducing rowing coaching specifically for recreational rowers, to include coxing skills.
