When I was speaking at the Winter School Games, I met Councillor Alan McMurray of North Somerset Council. He was really interested in my row, and invited me to speak at a Civic Lunch celebrating community sport in North Somerset. I was pretty chuffed to be speaking alongside an Olympian and a Great Britain gymnastics champion.
It was a lovely event – despite feeling exhausted from being out training with the boat the night before – and there were some great questions from the audience.
I had the boat with me, so we positioned it outside the hotel so that people could have a look at it afterwards. It made quite an impression!
