River Festival 2007
Well, the 1st July dawned grey and damp and we were worried ! worried that no one would show up , worried that people would show up and it would then start to rain, worried that we would be on yellow boards and worried that all our hard work would have been in vain.
As it turned out , we needn't have worried at all !! Barring one brief spell of rain around 1pm we had a great day. Admittedly not as hot as previous festivals, and perhaps the crowds weren't quite as large , but the day was still a resounding success. The RNLI performed rescue demonstrations, the lock continued to work as normal , the bands played and people ate , drank and were merry !!
There were a lot of things to see and do, a mini funfair, various stalls and sideshows , a beer and Pimms tent and of course, boats to see.

The bands played on in the sun to the early evening , and the people stayed to watch...
