The Rotary Club of Ellesmere will hold its 2018 Bell Boat Regatta on The Mere on Sunday, July 1.

The main beneficiaries will be Shropshire Royal British Legion Benevolent Fund and CRY – Cardiac Risk in the Young, with residual money being placed in the Ellesmere Rotary’s Charity Trust Fund.

This annual event is a wonderful day out for all the family in a beautiful setting, not just for the races that begin at 12 noon, but also for the extensive programme of additional attractions on the adjacent Cremorne Gardens.

These include music from The Reg Albert Jazz Quartet, Electric Go Karting, a funfair and many other stalls, with entertainments and refreshments that cater for all ages.

There are many attractive prizes to be won in the Grand Draw, including a helicopter flight for two, spa treatment for two, and a supercar driving experience.
