The Audlem RNLI Raft Race at Overwater 2013

Once again it's wonderful to report that this weekend Overwater hosted a fantastic RNLI festival. The raft race was hotly contested and congratulations must go to the speedy paddlers from The Bridge Inn who were first the post. The Best Dressed Raft award went to our very own team of intrepid engineers and marina staff who managed to incorporate on their raft a working shower, complete with shampoo and shower gel — all good clean fun! A special award was made to the Canal Cops who not only entertained us with their on the beat paddling but also for the second year running allowed old and young to get up close and personal with a working police car, including siren! The dog show drew a huge crowd with a very entertaining running commentary from local celebrity vet Steve Leonard of Leonard Brothers Vets.

A major vote of thanks must go to Rodney and Chris Cottrell, the Audlem Lass team and the hardworking volunteers of the RNLI who worked tirelessly to make the event such a success.
