A GIG rowing club received a first birthday present in the form of a new boat.

Porkellis Moor have welcomed the vessel which they bought from Mylor and Flushing Rowing Club to their home in Praa Sands.

It came as the club marked their first anniversary and they will now give the boat a refurbishment along with a name change from Trefusis.

A quiz night is being hosted by the club at the Star Inn in Porkellis on August 27 to raise money for the team.
