We have finally got our act together this year and will be taking part in the Kingston Rotary Club annual DRAGON BOAT RACE on the 21st July 2019.
This is a massive event in the Kingston summer calendar with each of the 60 teams raising money for charity, while attempting to win races on the river, in teams of 16.
Our first training session was on Monday evening. A brutal introduction to the sport, in the lashing rain. We donned our waterproofs and toughed it out, even had a bit of a laugh, eventually being forced to come in due to thunder and lightning!
We have chosen to support the FRIENDS OF RICHMOND PARK dedicated to the conservation and protection of the park. There is so much work which goes on behind the scenes to keep this 2,500 acres of National Nature Reserve & Site of Special Scientific Interest, as amazing as it is. I’m sure most of us locals, take it for granted.
So please support us and the future of Richmond Park by sponsoring us, here’s the LINK
And if you happen to be free on the 21st July – come and cheer us on! We’ll need all the help we can get!
