Save our sailing club image

Duncan Lawson, the Commodore of Weir Wood SC, is asking for support, and to raise awareness of legal issues that other sailing clubs could come up against. He writes:

In brief, two years ago, our reservoir was taken over by a new landlord.  The landlord has made it very clear that our sailing club is not part of the development plans for the site, despite us having over 40 years left on our lease.  Over the last 18 months we have been subjected to intimidation and unfounded legal proceedings have been initiated against us.

Further details can be read at:

We are at a point where we need to raise funds to assist with our legal costs and are appealing to you to help us save our club by:

  • Circulating this message to your Club members
  • Encouraging members to donate to our Crowd Justice fund using the link above – any donation would be greatly appreciated
  • Sharing with us any experience that you or your Club members may have in dealing with such a situation

Please help us take a stand against private landlords who want to ride roughshod over the rights of members community sports clubs.
