Two Men in a Boat

Two of our parishioners, Damian Colehan and Mike Ryan, will be following the path taken by Jerome K Jerome and his two friends in ‘Three Men in a Boat’ and rowing up the Thames from Kingston to Deans Farm – the site of the original Shrine of Our Lady of Caversham.

Starting on Thursday August 24th they will row for between 6 – 8 hours a day for 4 days and will pass through 21 locks and 7 constituencies, under 3 different motorways as well as the flight path of both Heathrow runways and, for a part of the journey, will follow the path taken by the kings and queens who were rowed up the Thames to the Shrine from Windsor.

If you wish to sponsor Damian and Mike, forms are available at the back of church, or visit
