Celebrating the Nene Valley


White Mills will be celebrating all that is good about the Nene Valley later this month when we take part in the Nene Valley Festival.  To mark the occasion, we are hosting two Open Days; one at the very start of the Festival on Sunday 17th September and the other on the very last day Sunday 24th September.

The great thing about Open Days is that they give boating enthusiasts an opportunity to see how we are progressing and how we have progressed since  we first opened 18 months ago. And the wonderful thing about the Nene Valley Festival is that it gives us all the chance to wave the flag for the River Nene and surrounding valley.

It is the second time that White Mills Marina has taken part in the Nene Valley Festival and on Sunday 24th September in addition to the Open Day, we will also be hosting a craft fair.

With very much a local theme, the craft fair will feature a range of stalls selling locally made items from cards, crochet and canal art through to cakes, clocks and coffees, and much more. There will even be an opportunity to chat to Colin Ashby (nb Living the Dream) about his fabulous pet portraits, have a go at weaving, thanks to Wendy Wenham (nb Annie Rose ) and enjoy music by Drifter who is making a much welcomed return to entertain visitors.  So it should be fun!

Oh yes, the Open Days s run from 10am - 4pm.
