As a surprise and culmination to a major inspection at the King's Lynn Sea Scouts Headquarters, T.S. Vancouver,  the Rotary Club of King's Lynn presented a cheque £3100 towards the cost of a new rowing boat.

Top officials knew, but it was a great surprise to the Sea Scouts to learn that they were well on the way to having the use on a new boat which will give more cadets the opportunty of getting on the water as the boat will accommodate eight Cadets.

The Rotary Club was informed of the need for another boat and the Communty Service Committee, which has raised the money, decided to support the Sea Scouts with a major donation of £3100.

Over time, the Rotary Club of King's Lynn has supported the Sea Scouts in other ways including donations towards the upkeep of their riverside headquarters building.
