The annual Raft Race was held on the River Dee on Sunday, 1 July. Around 30 rafts took part, many looking appropriate to the theme – “Great Sporting Occasions”. First prize went to “Crocky Wock” provided by the Crocky Trail and second to “Dee Valley Live Wires” from SP Energy. Ladies from the Druid Inn won prizes for both the fastest ladies raft and fastest hostelry. Best themed raft was “Wembley” from 4cAccess and the most innovative was “Soft to Firm” from Old Harkers Arms.

However taking part was the main objective and the rafts made a colourful spectacle with UK Fly-board champion, Jay St. John, hovering over them whilst drenching them with water! The event raised a substantial sum for Rotary charities.
