The guys from the ‘Brightsides Row’ will be present at Butts Park on Saturday, so make sure you show your support! More info on the Brightsides Row below:

3 friends from the small but perfectly formed village rugby club, Claverdon RFC, Rod Adlington Duncan Nealon and Darren Ariss, will be rowing from Gran Canaria to Barbados in January 2024. We are the first crew of 3 to attempt this route and are aiming to complete in under 40 days. We are also aiming to raise 250K for charity, partially in memory of Rod’s son, Barney, who died from Meningitis in 2003, but also 3 other very worthwhile causes. Get Ahead, RNLI, and the Army Cadet Charitable Trust. We leave on this epic journey a year to the day, and training has started in earnest! Please support in any way you can, an etching on the boat will only cost £30.00 and we will take your name across the ocean with us. Corporate sponsors are also very welcome. We would like to thank our main and local sponsors, Evans Hardy Bromwich, EHB estate agent, and Lifeline fire extinguishers for their amazing support.
