It’s finally here and it looks like the weather’s going to be good for the big Deepings Raft Race on Sunday August 3!
With as many as 6,000 people at the town’s previous raft races, come rain or shine, the raft race looks set to be a great day out.
The youth race starts at 12 noon and the main race sets off at 1pm followed by the fun race at 1.30pm, the ladies race at 1.45pm and the pub race, always good for a laugh, at 2pm with the presentations to winning raft teams around 4pm.
This year’s theme is rock ’n’ roll so feel free to dress up! There’s plenty of action away from the river too. Try international dishes and some home cooked classics for a bite to eat at the food stalls, check out the classic cars or try the funfair.
