Leamington solicitors Blythe Liggins have entered three crews of rowers in the Stratford-upon-Avon Boat Club’s annual fun regatta on Saturday (July 12).

Twelve lawyers have been taking part in three one-hour training sessions organised by the club and will row in a number of heats and finals during the day.

Blythe Liggins partner and head of family law Andrew Brooks, who began rowing at Stratford with his brother David when they were boys, said the event was aimed at people who were completely new to rowing – or who had given it up some years ago. “Entrants don’t need to be fit, or skilled or even have rowed before, they just need to be enthusiastic and willing to try something different. Oh yes, and be able to swim at least 50 metres in light clothing!” he said.

Prizes will be awarded to all crew members of the winning boats and the runners-up in each section, plus the crew in the best fancy dress. For spectators there will be a BBQ, tea & cake, a Pimm’s bar and a variety of games in the Recreation Ground, on the opposite bank from the theatre.

Blythe Liggins, who sponsored the Two Castles run from Warwick to Kenilworth last month for the ninth time, and recently raised a further £2,500 for their chosen charity The Myton Hospice, are also a main sponsor of Warwick District Remembers, the First World War centenary concert at the Spa Centre in Leamington on October 31.
