Dragon Boat Festival 10th September 2016
A Brilliant day at Bewl Water !! A team of Nourish volunteers and trustees donned their life vests and took to the water for the 19th annual Dragon boat festival!
Huge thanks to all the rowers that took part and raised funds for Nourish
Dawn Stanford, Paul Haines, Steven Elliott, Martin Holroyd, Jane Mars, Ed Nicholls, Chris Sams, Rob Shirley, Martin Windus, Tammie Perry (Tesco Metro), Jenny Kavanaugh-Midwinter (Tesco Metro), Becky Adams (Tesco Metro), Mark Midwinter (Tesco Metro), Henry Andrews (Tesco Pembury), Olivia Rabbetts (Tesco Pembury) and Jane Rabbetts (Tesco Pembury)
And the drummer was Jessica Hatch
An incredibly windy day with wind speeds of up to 20 knots at some point made it a very tough race but we gave it our best shot...
With a slightly dissapointing 2:00:33 on our first race we were determined to knock decent time off on our second outing and smashed 10 seconds of our time in both our next heats.

We also had a Nourish stall at the event with a tin can alley and this raised an amazing £179.01. Lots of excited children won our great animal inflatables and it was great to see them all around the event on the day!!
Thank you to all our wonerful volunteers that organised and manned the stall all day!
Overall a fantastic day. Bring on the 20th annual race next year in 2017!!
