CROWDS packed the banks of Needham Lake at the weekend to watch teams battle it out to win the annual Needham raft race.

Nineteen rafts competed in the 10th event – and appropriately, the fancy dress theme was ten.

The Four Non Bonds team from Creeting St Peter won the fancy dress competition with their innovative portrayal of the ITN News at 10 live from Number 10 Downing Street. But race victory went to Cattermoles of Ipswich, who gained first place for the second year in a row.

Event organiser Jean Pittaway, said: “It was a beautiful day and the event went very well.

“The race isn’t about coming first, it’s about having fun.”

And a special prize went to the raft coming in 10th place – to keep the anniversary celebrations going.
