At a boat naming ceremony held at the Peterborough City Rowing Club on a snowy Saturday morning on the 31 January 2015 WBro Bob Beeton, armed with the traditional bottle of champagne, named a single scull boat "On The Level.”  The boat is for the benefit of the juniors at the Peterborough City Rowing Club.

Members of Fitzwilliam Lodge No 2533, who had raised the money for the boat during WBro Mike Marshall's year in the chair of King Solomon, gathered to enjoy the occasion.

The Chairman of the Peterborough City Rowing Club, John Canton, thanked the Brethren for their very generous donation.  

Each boat costs in the region of £2,000.  The total raised during the year amounted to £2,417.12.  The balance will be used to supply oars for the boat.  The Peterborough City Rowing Club is a registered charity and apart from subscriptions relies heavily on donations to fund it's operations. 

The boat made its maiden voyage on the rowing course with the son of WBro Marshall at the helm.
