For three nights the CRA will have an enclosure at First Post Corner in Fen Ditton which gives an excellent view of the races, and we will be pleased to welcome competitors' families and non-participating members of CRA clubs to watch from a somewhat safer vantage point than the towpath. Well-behaved children are welcome, and parents are reminded that children remain their responsibility whilst in the enclosure. Well behaved dogs are also welcome, but MUST be kept on leads, and any mess cleared up. If you bring a dog please DO NOT let it swim in the river.
The enclosure will be open on Tuesday 18th July, Thursday 20th July and Friday 21st July.
Our arrangements for each evening are very informal. You are welcome to bring a picnic, but no barbecues please. Please ensure that no glass of any sort is brought on to the site, as livestock is kept on it for the remainder of the year – so no glass wine glasses, or wine/beer etc in glass bottles. Decant into plastic containers before you leave home. Please take any rubbish home with you.
There are a limited number of chairs and tables in the enclosure so you might like to put folding chairs or a rug in the boot of your car, to ensure you have somewhere to sit for the evening.
The gate to the field is manned and we need to know expected numbers for each night.
Please book via Eventbrite, using the links below.
Please book an enclosure ticket for each member of your party, be they adult or child, and a car park ticket for each vehicle you expect to bring. It would be helpful if you could bring as few cars as possible for the size of your party, as the car park's capacity is finite.
To get to the First Post Enclosure in Fen Ditton you drive past the Plough PH and it is on the left almost at the end of the road – postcode CB5 8SX. Parking is available on the Enclosure field and there are toilets on site. Division race times are 4.55; 5.35; 6.15; 6.55; 7.35; 8.10 and 8.45 pm.
The enclosure will be hosted by CRA Vice-President Claire Berryman. If you need further information, or have difficulties with booking via Eventbrite please contact her Claire Berryman.
