Southsea club’s 24-hour row-a-thon

My thought was that a lot of visitors come to Portsmouth to see HMS Queen Elizabeth but obviously it is a remote experience as they are not allowed on the ship. A figurehead could be the focus of their interest.''Simon Hart

NOSTALGIA: Should the nation’s figurehead have one created for HMS QE?

Have your say

PEOPLE can take part in a 24-hour charity row-a-thon at Southsea Rowing Club next month.

The event starts at 2.30pm on Friday, 
April 15 and will carry on until 2.30pm the next day.

The money raised will be split 50/50 between The Rowans Hospice and the Southsea Rowing Club’s boat fund.

The club wants to try and get people from the local community interested in rowing and have opened the event up to everyone.
