You can join in this year's Festival activities on the river by entering the Raft Race on Saturday 5th September with the chance to win a cash prize or if you're aged between 10 & 15 years old and you have your own paddleboard you can take part in the stand-up Paddle Board race on Sunday 6th September. Our new River Activities webpages are now online and you can check out the rules of entry for both of these challenges and download and submit your entry form for whichever race you choose. We look forward to hearing from you.

Of course, if you prefer a more relaxing river experience we are again offering you the opportunity to enjoy a trip up the river on one of Wilts & Berks Canal Trust (WBCT) boats. Just check out the "Boat Trips" page for times and prices.

Best Regards

MFRF Committee
