The 15th annual Needham Market raft race takes place at Needham Lakes on Sunday, June 12 at 1.30pm.

Individuals and businesses will be racing their home made rafts and interpreting this year’s theme of ‘Movie Madness’, while many of whom will use the event it as an opportunity to fundraise.

The day gives local organisations and charities the chance to have a stall and try and raise some much needed funds.

You only need a team of four (aged over 16) at a cost of £16 per team - and a homemade raft.

A day when we cheer on the rafts when they compete for the fastest lap time in the heats to win the ‘Tracey Cadman Challenge’ and then on to the coveted first prize trophy, or is that the prize for best raft and team?! Pauline Manders will again be with us selling her new book and has again donated copies for our winners.
