And the stall attracted much attention. It is always great to meet some of our loyal Weird Fish fans.

We were very proud to meet gold medal winning Paralympian Helena Lucas MBE, she was kind enough to show us her gold medal, and even hold it, it was so heavy!

With the live bands playing all day, the many boating demos and the hard work put in by everyone involved, it proved to be a fantastic weekend and we look forward to returning in 2016, we hope to see you there.
