Regatta celebrates five years of giving disabled access to river

HUNDREDS of people attended the fifth Henley Regatta for the Disabled.

The event, which celebrates access to the River Thames for all, took place at Phyllis Court Club on Saturday.

It was opened by Henley MP John Howell who also started the first of several dragon boat races and even provided a commentary.

A total of eight teams from local companies and special schools took part in the races and some crews wore fancy dress costumes as they took to the water.

The winners were the Hickling Heroes while a team from Headway, the brain injury charity, took the most enthusiastic crew award.
