With a week until the Stratford Regatta, preparations have been finalised.
The day will also be fundraising for two local charities, Mencap and St Basils. In a time of increasing homelessness in our community, we hope support from Rosconn and the Regatta will make a difference.
The regatta has been taking place in Stratford since 1879.
As well as Stratford’s own crews, the event draws competitors, able-bodied and adaptive, and their supporters from clubs throughout the UK, including Leicester Rowing Club, Monmouth Comprehensive School, Northwich Rowing Club, Nottingham & Union Rowing Club and nearby Warwick Boat Club.
Racing is on the town stretch of the river from Holy Trinity Church to the club grounds by the Tramway Bridge.
As well as the rowing contingent, the regatta attracts a lot of interest from visitors to the town who come down to the Bancroft Gardens and the Recreation Ground to enjoy the racing, barbecue and the beer and tea tent in the club grounds, which are open to all.

We hope to see you on Saturday 16th June
