  • Terms of Use.

    This news site is run as a news blog by an individual who finances it. This is a non commercial non profitable blog.

    The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

    If you are a private blogger having the same problem I would like to hear from you.

    If you are a online newspaper or press association your comments would also be welcome.

    If anyone has a problem with the content of this site and wishes for any content to be remove please contact me.

Marlow & District Community 1st Responders

– on call to save lives in your community.

Marlow and District Community First Responders is a group of equipped volunteers, trained by South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS). Mobilised by Ambulance Control they respond to certain types of medical emergencies and initiate
treatment while the ambulance is en-route.

So why are they needed? The chances of saving a life can be greatly increased by early intervention, which can be as vital as just a minute or two. For every minute that passes following a cardiac arrest, the chances of survival decreases by 10%. Early access means, if needed, early resuscitation, early defibrillation and early advanced
life support.

This type of scheme isn’t a new concept, there are many such schemes around the country, which make a real difference and have saved many lives over the years. SCAS train responders to help patients suffering from cardiac related
problems, breathing difficulties, severe bleeding, diabetic emergencies and
unconscious casualties, all of which will benefit from early treatment.

Community First Responders can save these vital minutes as their homes are their bases, from which they are deployed simultaneously with the Ambulance by Ambulance Control. Because their homes are in the locality, they should arrive before the Ambulance to provide emergency life support and reassurance to relatives and friends.

If you would like to show your support for the job they do, why not sponsor a piece of equipment or make Marlow and District Community First Responders your charity for next year. They are a voluntary organization, therefore they have to raise the funds to operate the scheme. They are supported by St John Ambulance and South Central Ambulance Service, but there are items they have to provide for themselves. Items such as magnetic signs to put on the sides of responder vehicles, additional kits and defibrillators to expand the team, and many more pieces of equipment could increase efficiency and make a life or death difference. In addition, the kit that has been kindly donated by SCAS League of Friends will eventually need replacing, therefore they require funds to cover this eventuality.

To purchase such equipment they are relying on the generosity of the public, local businesses and organizations. Marlow and District Community First Responders would be very grateful for any donation or sponsorship that you are able to provide the scheme, whether this is by raising some general funds, purchasing a defibrillator or maybe even a complete kit. In return sponsorship badges or plates could be displayed on the piece of equipment or kit bag.

It currently costs £1,575 to buy a defibrillator and a SatNav system would cost around £90-£120 for each Responder.

Marlow Rowing Club
  • Clubhouse Opening for Use

    We have passed a milestone with the new building, having reached "practical completion" stage with the builders. This means that while there are still minor works to do, and snagging to tidy up, the building is basically fit to go. This does mean that builders will continue to access the building over the coming weeks, including changing rooms, to remedy some known issues and to activate the lift.

    Therefore the new club will be opening to the membership generally this weekend, to co-incide with the Long Distance Sculls on Saturday.

  • Club Supper 2014

    The club supper will be at the Compleat Angler - 14th November - 7.30pm - Book Online

  • BBQ - Saturday 13th Sept 2014

    {phocagallery view=category|categoryid=101|imageid=2359|imageshadow=none|float=left}There will be a club BBQ at the club at 7.30pm on Saturday 13th September to mark the rebuild of the club. We won't have access to the whole building by then, but we will be back in the boat bays and able to use the landing area. It's a year since our Pre-Demolition BBQ and we're delighted with how it looks so come down to the club and see yourself.

    Tickets will be £5, and will be available on the door and online. The format will be pretty much like last time, although we cannot guarantee quite such a photogenic sunset.

     How you can help us build a facility for the community and Olympic athletes of the future

    Very soon we will be opening our new home, the state of the art Marlow Water Sports Hub providing a world class community sports facility for rowing and sculling, para-rowing, canoeing, para-canoeing, triathlon and open water swimming. Although we can complete the building, we still need to raise more money to fit out the gym and complete the purchase of the land freehold.

Molly Harding and Heidi Long are off to the Junior World championships in Hamburg in August. Molly will race in the quad while Heidi is in the coxless four. Meanwhile, Rosalind Wilson, Erica Holmes and Alex Haynes will be packing their bags for Libourne near Bordeaux where this years Coupe de la Jeunesse (European Championships) takes place at the end of July. The girls will be racing in the quad and single respectively, while Alex has been selected for the double scull.
