whose surface is nervous,
sensible as skin,
whose power is to roll the stars in
and whose heart is the heart
to express glory.

The club that goes with the flow


In the first row below are some impressions from the night of Monday 16th July, the first Boat-ting after the death of Lol Coxhill, who’d played such an important part at the club. A toast was quietly raised to the fallen hero.
