Royal Celebrations at river Medway during The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee bank holiday
THERE will be three days of special events near the river Medway during the extended bank holiday weekend which marks the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, it has been announced today.
On Saturday the 2th of June, yachts and sailing vessels of every kind will join together for the Medway River Festival at the Chatham Waterfront. Celebrating Medway's maritime connections and supported by Chatham Maritime Trust, the free family event will run from 10.30am to 4.30pm with river displays and races running all day, along with food stalls, exhibitions and live music.
Among the events scheduled to take place will be yacht and dragon fleet races and displays by the Medway Watersports Trust, the Medway Towns Rowing Club, Medway Yacht Club and The Morning Star Trust. The Kingswear Castle Paddle Steamer is also set to sail by as part of the day's events. The festival will be opened officially by the Mayor and Mayoress of Medway at 10.30am.
Medway Council's Portfolio Holder for Community Services Councillor Howard Doe said: "With so much of Medway's rich history associated with the river, this wonderful themed day will be the perfect way to begin this very special weekend of celebration, and we hope that it will bring out a real community spirit that will continue throughout the Diamond Jubilee holiday".
