Fairfield Canoe Club
2019 Centenary Year

Ownership of Rudder Grange Boathouse changed; the new owner wasn’t as keen on boat building as the previous one, and the Rudder Grange Canoe Club duly dispersed. Arthur Howard, Jim Smith and others came across to Fairfield Canoe Club and other members of Rudder Grange Canoe Club went to Ivanhoe with Ross Chenoweth. There was some ill feeling after Ross took all boats etc. and bulk of Rudder Grange Club members to Ivanhoe. The President of FCC might have been Dudley Crewes at the time

The property next door to FCC was offered for sale at £500 but the club couldn't afford it and Mr Crewes bought it instead.
