DEEPINGS RAFT RACE IS A CARNIVAL OF FAMILY FUN ON THE WATER

The results are in from another hugely successful Deepings Raft Race!

We love a bit of quirky British fun and this annual charity event on Sunday August 4 attracted big crowds watching the action on the river, enjoying the entertainment throughout the day and the many stalls.
