Sunday July 1st was Ely Aquafest 2018 – East Cambridgeshire’s biggest free family fun day out – organised by the two Rotary clubs in Ely. Despite temperatures approaching a sweltering 30c the crowds turned out to see raft races and Hannam’s Wake Hub on the river, events as diverse as the Rockin’ Ukuleles and Viking re-enactors on Lavender Green, and listening to singers Jacen Bruce, Anne Hester and Chris Fox, Michael Antony, and Special Groove on Jubilee Gardens – hosted by the lovely Sue Marchant from BBC Radio Cambridgeshire. Highlight of the day were undoubtedly the three flyovers by the D-Day veteran C-47 Douglas Dakota from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight – which literally stopped the show (and the Vikings in mid-battle).
