Thank you to everyone who entered the Row to Go competition this year. Congratulations to our four VIP winners, Jackie Foster, Janet Johnson, Natalie Ainscough and Lisa Tebbutt who will all enjoy the VIP treatment at Temple Island Enclosure on the opening day of Henley Regatta.
Congratulations also go to our runners up, Christina Sleight who gets to enjoy afternoon tea at The Start Enclosure, and Vanessa Alvis and Jon Davies who both win tickets to the Redgrave VIP Regatta Party. Well done to you all, you will have a fabulous day.
Dragons Den star and business entrepreneur Peter Jones knows a thing or two about great products.
Appearing on BBC's The One Show on Friday 30th January presenter Chris Evans asked guests Peter and Kylie Minogue what their favourite tipples were. Imagine our delight when Peter Jones replied "A couple of pints of Brakspear Beer". The man has impeccable taste buds as well as good business savvy. Cheers Mr Jones!
