Hi Richard,

That reminds me...I got a request from the Rowing Club a couple of weeks

The rowing club is applying for funding the extend the boathouse. One of the
requirements these days is to show that the club provides additional
benefits to the community other than rowing. To that extent can the lug (you
I guess as head honcho) write a letter of support that says how much the lug
appreciates the club providing facilities etc. Below is an outline of what
is needed/why. Obviously we are not a sporting club but I'm sure that we
will benefit from the improved club room. (improved access to power,
projection, internet (yes really)).

Simon Dickie made the point that having letters of support from
organisations like Durham City Council and Durham Sport is insufficient
evidence of muti-sport use and increased activity. We need other
organisations to write and say that they have seen our project - like what
they see and think that they would be able to use the new Clubroom - Gym -
Fitness Suite - Access to Water - Changing Rooms ( whichever) for their
activities. It will help if these letters can come from organisations as
diverse as possible. Mainline sports clubs, rugby , cricket , archery , judo
, weightlifting etc. through to general leisure activities like Line Dancing
, Origami , Knitting Circles , Computer Users , Flower Arranging , Music
Groups , Drama Groups, Belly Dancing classes etc. ( as long as it is legal).
Please try and get some support - I can provide more backgroiund info if
required. - I hope that you can all help with this part of the project to
build up a good dossier of potential multi use and increased activity in our
<end quote>

Hopefully members of the LUG will support this. The rowing club have
provided facilities for the LUG for a number of years (including use of the
boathouse for install days etc.)


P.S. I can help with words if you want but given that I'm a member of the
Rowing Club its probably best that the letter is authored by a non-member.
