Community Regatta '21 #CommReg21
Another fabulously successful Community Regatta with enormous thanks to Anne, Rachel, Sharon and Theresa who created the day, and all the unsung helpers who helped plan, set up, break down and run the event. It raises funds for Club Equipment and brings together local businesses in a fun environment and despite blazing sunshine, torrential rain and a thunderstorm, at one point all at the same time, we put on an excellent show.
With breakfast at The Old Crown, lunch by Cappadocia (Kingston) and an excellent tea by Laila of Miss Polly (of Molesey Cricket Club) we certainly didn't go hungry. Key sponsors construction company Willmot Dixon and solicitors Russell Cooke were generous with their entries and praise for the event and it was pleasing that some crews who were unsuccessful in previous years came away with some sort of bling this year.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Elmbridge Cllr Tony Popham and Jo Wright were with us for the afternoon and made a point in trying to talk to every guest and presented prizes at the end of the day. They too were fulsome in their praise as were all our guests.
As I said in my summing up: "If you can't be proud to be Captain of Weybridge Rowing Club today, then when?”
