Severn Unit at Battle Re-Enactment


Severn Unit were kept busy providing water safety cover during the weekend of the recent Evesham Medieval Festival.
HOU Nic Price said, “Despite the extremely hot weather the unit were able to maintain patrols of the riverside to ensure the safety of the estimated 35,000 crowd which were gathered in the riverside park to watch the re-enactments of the 1265 Battle of Evesham.”

The Unit was thanked by the Festival Director of Administration Bruce Taylor for bringing two of their boats 20 miles up the Avon to provide this important safety cover.
The organisers have requested the Unit to attend again next year.
