Thames Dragons participate in Totally Thames Festival by Sarah McBride.

On the weekend of 13th – 14th September, team members Sarah McBride, Stuart Cole, Wendy Pepperall, Marie-Cecile Blackwood and Helene Bayssette headed down to Potters Fields between City Hall and Tower Bridge to host a stall at the Blue Ribbon Village, an annual arts and crafts festival where charitable and voluntary organisations who play a part in the ecology, history and activities of the Thames.

There were many visitors to our stall, of all ages, backgrounds and nationalities interested in hearing about our team, the sport and the history of dragon boating. Our more enthusiastic and energetic visitors even had a go on Ergo, our paddling machine, some of which were as young as two!
