Bredon Boat Races 2022

2022 sees us re-launching the Bredon Boat Races, this annual event having been suspended since 2019 due to COVID
Make sure you have the date in your diary. This year it is on Saturday 3rd September at 12-4.30pm in the Old Rectory Meadow, off Dock Lane.
Team entries.
We are now taking entries for teams. Eight paddlers to a boat. The helmsman and all equipment is provided. If you would like an entry form, please email Chris at parishsecretarybbg@outlook.com
Stalls:
If you fancy having a stall of your own or would like to help run a stall, please email Chris at parishsecretarybbg@outlook.com. Still only £10 per table (no commercial stalls please)
Contributions:
We shall have a bottle stall and book stall, as before. If you can contribute to either of these stalls, please contact Elaine Lane 07741 014612. We are also looking for high value prizes for a ‘Top Tombola’ stall. This is to replace the raffle. If any local organisations would like to donate a prize (and in doing so, gain a spot of advertising!), please contact Chris at parishsecretarybbg@outlook.com
What’s on?
The racing takes centre stage, obviously, but there will also be live music provided by The ReVivals with the addition this year of a performance by the I Sing Choir from Tewkesbury. Refreshments will be plentiful with a barbeque, pig roast and the cake-laden tea tent. The ever popular cider tent will be there as will the tea tent. This year, if the weather is as good as 2019 we shall have more soft drinks available with Pimms and G&T….
It will be wonderful thing to see the village coming together again to catch up with friends after so long and enjoy the atmosphere in such a beautiful setting. If you’ve not been before, do give it a try. If you have been before, we look forward to seeing you again.
Admission remains just £2.50 per adult. U12’s free.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO THIS YEAR’S GENEROUS SPONSORS
