In celebration of the five rivers that pass through Salisbury“ the Avon, Nadder, Ebble, Wylye and Bourne“ comes the˜Five Rivers Festival’ organised by the Salisbury Rotary Club. Berry Telecom are proud to support the Bubble Football tournament which is being held on the May Bank Holiday Monday.
At the Festival there are three events taking place around Ashley Green“ a River Float, two Bubble Football events and a special Car Boot Sale. It is also hoped that the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust and the Salisbury & District Angling Club will provide educational talks about aquatic bug life and river conservation.
At the end of the River Float, on Ashley Green, the Fire Station will be holding a special Car Boot Sale offering a great chance to sell your unwanted possessions, or to pick up a bargain.
Just up from Ashley Green on Fisherton Rec, we will be Berry Telecom’s adult Bubble Football Tournament.
In the afternoon, on the other side of the City and on a 100 metre stretch of the River Avon from the Sea Cadet building down to Churchill Gardens, there will be three extremely entertaining and competitive River Races, all for competent swimmers aged 16+. There will be a Ladies’ Race, a Men’s Race and a Team Race. Three viewing areas will help this a real spectacle and fun event!
There will be hot and cold refreshments at each venue as well as additional entertainment for children.
The River Float is an opportunity for competent swimmers aged 12+ to float down a 0.8 mile stretch of the River Avon from Stink Pot Bridge at Stratford-sub-Castle down to Ashley Road. There are plenty of viewing points along the Board Walk of the Avon Valley Nature Reserve for those who want to come and support
