Bottle of water passes through on Thames source to sea relay

A BOTTLE of water carried from the source of the Thames to the sea made its way through Henley.

Members of the Rivertime Boat Trust, Henley Rowing Club and the Henley Whalers joined the 215-mile Source to Sea river relay for the second year running.

The event is part of the Totally Thames festival and involves the bottle or “baton” being carried by different community groups on each leg of the journey.

On Monday last week, it travelled from Caversham Lock to Shiplake Lock on Rivertime, a cruiser specially adapted to provide river trips for disabled people.

Lucy Herbert, senior skipper for Rivertime, then handed it over to Christine Carey and Mr Toad, from the River and Rowing Museum.
