This Sunday was the christening of a new coastal rowing boat which is to be used as a training aid for the junior rowers of the Bideford Amateur Athletic Club.
The boat was supported by the Bideford Bridge Trust along with sponsorship by local butcher’s By the Ford of the High Street, Bideford.
The boat was officially named By The Ford by Tina Robertson (owner of By the Ford butchers) and Alice Jackson who started her rowing career as a junior rower at the Bideford Blues and has now gone on to row in the England squad.
Bideford Amateur Athletic Club is truly grateful to the Bideford Bridge Trust and Tina Robertson for their very generous support of the club.
