A spectacular flotilla of boats sailed from Sunbury to Staines-upon-Thames led by the Queen’s rowbarge, Gloriana, in celebration of the Mayor of Spelthorne’s River Day on Saturday 24 June.
Gloriana was joined by the Impossible Dream, a specially adapted wheelchair friendly motorboat which has been chosen as one of the Mayor’s charities, the Jolly Brit, a former tender to the Royal Yacht Britannia, and several local rowing clubs and schools.
Hundreds of residents lined the towpath to watch the flotilla, enjoy the entertainment and help raise money for local good causes.
Many thanks to the event sponsors: Staines-upon-Thames Business Improvement District, Nauticalia, Vintage Inns (Thames Court), Mercure Hotels (Thames Lodge), Village Matters, Voluntary Support (North Surrey) and the Sunbury Embroidery Gallery.
