Head of the River

Star Club Head of the River


We are very disappointed to tell you that our Head of the River on Sunday is cancelled. It has been threatening all week but the river is now too high and flowing too fast for us to safely go ahead with the event.

Thank you to everyone who has entered. If you have paid by bank transfer please would you send your Name, Club, Account number and sort code and we will arrange to refund your seat fees back to you over the next few days.

We will have our New Year Head on Sunday, 12th January 2020 so would love to see you all then. It will run with the same format as this one and we will endeavour to get BROE open for entries by early December, after the details have been sent out.

Thank you again for your support and enjoy the weekend.
