The lean, Nene rowing machines
Elliott’s marketing assistant David Cross beats time as fellow employees sign up for the annual Dragon Boat Race. Dragon Boat Festival River Nene
“We are sure that teams and festival visitors alike will have a fantastic day”.
Other teams lining up are Peterborough City Council bin men, Crown Packaging, the City College, Queensgate Shopping Centre and Elliott Group (who have entered an amazing five teams made up of staff across the country).
The festival’s nominated charity, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), is one of many good causes set to benefit from sponsorship raised by the crews and city centre restaurant East has donated a special banquet for the crew that raises the most.
East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices will also have an information point where you can learn more about the charity and keep refreshed at the beer tent and take advantage of a huge variety of food stalls including a barbecue, crepes, wraps, fish and chips, chocolate fountain, ice creams and smoothies.
Entrance to the festival is free to spectators.
Pay and display parking is available at nearby Peterborough Key Theatre, Bishop’s Road and Pleasure Fair Meadow car parks.
