Crowds flock to boat show as sun replaces snow

ABOUT 1,500 people attended the third annual Henley and Wargrave Boat Show in bright sunshine at the weekend.

It was a contrast to last year when the event was hit by snow and visitor numbers were badly affected.

The show took place at Val Wyatt Marine and Bushnell’s Boatyard in Wargrave on Saturday and Sunday with boats ranging from £200 day-sailors to larger cruisers on sale.

Hobbs of Henley offered boat trips between the venues and there were 25 stalls at Val Wyatt Marine, including Time for Tea and Boatique, from Henley, and A Stitch in Time and the Leather Surgeons, from Wargrave.

The show coincided with the opening of a new deli and café at Val Wyatt Marine, called the Local Larder.
