While I was still the Vice Chairman of Hertfordshire County Council I was asked to draw names out of box to see which of the schools in Hertfordshire would take part in the Schools White Water Festival held in the Lea Valley Regional Parks Authorities White Water Centre at Waltham Cross.
They asked me come along and see the fun and to support Broxbourne’s lucky draw winners the Rivers Educational Support Centre which is based in Essex Road Hoddesdon. The weather was fantastic as you can see and the participating schools from all over Hertfordshire and Essex enjoy a wonderful experience.
I believe this is now the third such event that has been staged for schools and more are planned in future as part of the Olympic legacy. Building work is in progress to enhance the the facilities even further and offer more to both participants and spectators.
You can see some of Dave’s pictures of this event on this page, as well as a short video. You can find more of his pictures at http://tinyurl.com/n2vk5dz
