Pershore RiverSide Festival 18th July 2015.
On a warm sunny Saturday morning we all met at the Centre.
We set up our area near to the river for Pershore’s first river festival getting the canoes out onto the river ,kayaks out and blowing up the 8 SUP’s.One of which was a 10 man board .The first half an hour of the morning was very slow then it just went mad! We just didn’t stop kitting people up who wanted to have a go at canoeing ,kayaking and sup from 10.30 until 16.00 .
At the start of the day, Ethan and I started on the ergo ,but by dinner we had to stop this and help with cover on the water as it was a very busy day. It was a challenge at time coping with the volume of interest verses the coaches available. All had a great time and it really helped raise the profile of the club and water sporting activities in general.
I would like to thank everyone who helped on the day which consisted of Dave and Jan on the BBQ (excellent burgers!) ,Liz ,Ellie and Rita taking the bookings and kitting people out. Fitz and my dad ( Ed) and Matt getting people on or off the water . On the water as cover and coaches were Adam ,Graham ,Mel ,Emma ,Jenny ,Ethan myself (Oliver) ,Paul (f ) and Sue.
At the end off the day we had time to play on the sup boards ourselves which was fun. A great fun action packed time was had by all.
