The 40th Anniversary RAFT RACE. AHOY me hearties ! ! We’ve got pirates on the Avon and to scare the fish an inflatable shark. Using the latest deep in South Warwickshire technology the drone was buzzing over one of the two weirs as 53 rafts battled their way down the 7.5 mile course to finish in Stratford upon Avon yesterday…….all to help our nominated charity for 2016 “Heart of England Mencap”.

If nothing else it shows how pretty the River Avon is in our neck of the woods.
