Severn Units Important role at the Tewkesbury Big Weekend


The Severn Unit was kept busy at the Tewkesbury Big Weekend, which is a charity event bringing the town and river together.​

The Unit provided safety boat cover and operated the MVS Marine Control Centre which monitored and controlled the river traffic over the two days.

​The unit organised three successful duck races and their own water display team put on a public demonstration.

Head of Unit Nic Price said, “The whole weekend was a great success and we were proud that our efforts were commended by Avon Navigation Trust Director Paul Cronin”.
