This year’s Ely Aquafest on Sunday July 1st, organised by the two Rotary Clubs in Ely, will celebrate its fortieth anniversary.
The event, started by the Rotary Club of Ely as a “thank you” to the community for supporting Rotary’s fundraising throughout the year, began as a modest river-based event, but now encompasses the river and both Lavender Green and Jubilee Gardens as well, attracting thousands of visitors to see the arena events and visit the multitude of stalls and funfair rides.
To celebrate this special anniversary the Aquafest team are hoping to produce a video presentation and a static display of photos of past Aquafests in The Maltings. If anyone has any photos which the Aquafest team could borrow and copy, particularly those from the 1970s 80s, and 90s they would be extremely grateful.
Photos should be sent (with return address please) to Viv Doji, Ely Aquafest Photos, 52 Prickwillow Road, Ely, CB7 4QT or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, ideally by the first week in June.
