THE Henley Regatta for the Disabled will take place at Phyllis Court Club tomorrow (Saturday).

The regatta, now in its fourth year, provides access to the Thames for children and adults with all levels of disability and is a day out for their families, friends and carers.

There will be dragon boat racing and free river trips offered by the specially adapted cruiser Rivertime and other boats.

On the bank there will be refreshments, a bar, live music, Punch and Judy show, interactive zoo, face-painting, inflatables and a climbing wall suitable for the disabled.

Regatta chairman Ian Tritton said: “The regatta is a great day out by the river, with accessible activities for everyone.”

Regatta co-founder Lucy Walton said: “It is a great day out for the whole family, and the event is very much-supported by the local community.”

The regatta will be opened at 10am by Henley MP John Howell and will finish at about 3.30pm when Mayor Stefan Gawrysiak will present the prizes.

Entry is £4 per person and carers get in free. Advance tickets are available from info@regattaforthedisabled.org or call (01491) 635332.
