Steve Double welcomes James Cracknell to Newquay

Steve Double, Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for St SAustell and Newquay, recently welcomed Olympic Gold Medalist and prospective European MP James Cracknell to Newquay, including a visit to Newquay Rowing Club.

Commenting Steve said, ‘Newquay Rowing Club is a fantastic local association which has been promoting rowing in historic Cornish pilot gigs since the 1920’s.  The rowing club showed us their oldest boats including the ‘Newquay’ which was laid down in 1812 and is used to this day.’

James swapped stories with the rowing teams and talked about the importance of engaging young people in traditional local sports.
