Exciting news! Do you shop at Waitrose in Twyford? Then start saving those green tokens!
For the month of July, the Wargrave & Shiplake Regatta and Open Water Swim will be vying for a share of the £1,000 that Waitrose Twyford branch will donate to three local charities. If you shop there, please show your support by placing your green tokens in the Community Matters box for WSR (located by the store exit) – the more tokens we get, the bigger the donation we receive! The regatta is a registered charity and raises much needed funds to support the maintenance of over 30 traditional boats and to conserve this village event.
This year’s regatta is taking place on 7th-8th August. Entries are still open if you fancy taking part in skiff, canoe, punt or dongola races; the Open Water Swim offers 2km or 1km distances, or a shorter social ‘fun’ swim downstream.
Huge thanks from the WSR Committee.
