RiverDay 2019 raises over £4000

A HUGE thank you to everyone who supported RiverDay this year. We raised over £4000 !!!

Braving Saharan temperatures, visitors and supporters of Swinbrook RiverDay 2019 helped to raise an astonishing £4182 for charities and local causes. The profits made are distributed as follows:

  • HELEN & DOUGLAS HOUSE – £3250
  • SWINBROOK VILLAGE HALL – £325
  • ASTHALL LEIGH MEMORIAL HALL – £307
  • SWINBROOK CRICKET CLUB – £300
Down on previous years mainly owing to our inability to stage a Raft Race this year. This was due entirely to safety concerns brought about the excessive pollution of the River Windrush.

IT’S A KNOCKOUT – “REGISTER NOW”

In a small field in Oxfordshire...

Time to get your ‘A’ TEAM together for the very first Swinbrook & Asthall Riverday ‘IT’S A KNOCKOUT’ competition.

OK – so we can’t run a Raft Race this year…but that doesn’t stop us from having fun right?

So this year we bring you “It’s a Knockout” with a twist!!

A colourful combination of Fancy Dress, Water Zorbing and Field Competitions, run against the clock with teams battling for ‘the coveted’ [as they say on Pointless] RiverDay Trophy.

This year’s theme – ‘Countries’

It’s a Knock-Out in fancy dress…..

With the coveted RiverDay Trophy up for grabs along with runner up prizes, we would love our  ‘It’s a Knock-Out‘ competition to bring a splash of colour to the banks of the Windrush. 

This year’s theme is ‘Countries‘. No doubt we can look forward to more outrageous interpretations – after all you have never let us down before. 🙂

Full details will be published soon, but for now – this is the general idea:-

  • Teams of 3 or 4 [entry £10 per team]
  • Each team member must be in theme costume
  • At least one responsible adult with or in each team
  • 4 events include Zorbing, Wellie-Wanging, Skittles & Aunt Sally
  • All team members must take part in at least 3 events
With our very own ‘Mike the Mic’ running after you all with commentary, this is going to make for quite the spectacle…

Zorb 4 2019

ZORBIN’…it’s too much fun!

On an overcast February afternoon in deepest Oxfordshire, three supposed grown-ups and a brave and intrepid teenager set about sea trials [well, swimming pool] of the very first prototype 2019 RiverDay Zorb.

We are delighted to conclude having picked ourselves up from the ground, repaired our split sides that ‘Zorbing’ has a green light for RiverDay 2019.

As with all RiverDay events, we know how competitive you all are and we are working very hard [no really] to come up with a properly challenging ‘It’s a Knock-Out’ style ‘Race’ including an Aqua Zorbing Time Trial.

We will keep you updated of progress.
