little help here?


We are disappointed to announce the theft of 5 outboard engines, stolen from our not-for-profit Andrew Simpson Centre in Reading, located on Burghfield Lake in Theale. The theft of these engines has been reported to the Police and we are working with the incredibly supportive local community in order to keep our Watersports activity going in the meantime.

Unfortunately, recovering stolen motors is often extremely difficult and success rates are low. As a notably rising problem within the marine sector, this has a devastating impact on the charitable sailing programmes that we can deliver within the local Reading community, directly reducing the amount of young people we are able to get out on the water.
