Have your say

A BUSY summer is in store for the River Ancholme with a wide range of competative and social events packed into a diary released by the Environment Agency.

Rowers, canoists, boat users, cyclists and runners are all set to make use of Brigg’s best resource.

All event organisers are hoping for better weed control this year than in 2011, when green duckweed hampered activity, several events being cancelled.

Events early in the summer are:

l Sunday, April 15: Scrumpy Row organised by the Ancholme Rowing Club.

l Sunday, April 22: Brigg BCU Marathon organised by Glanford and Scunthorpe Canoe Club.

l Tuesday, May 22: Brigg to Brandy Wharf canoe organised by Glanford and Scunthorpe Canoe Club.

l Saturday, June 2: Glanford Boat Club Regatta organised by Glanford Boat Club.

l Sunday, June 3: North Lincs Challenge organised by Lincsquad.

l Sunday, June 3 and Monday, June 4: Glanford Boat Club Regatta organised by Glanford Boat Club.

l Friday, June 8: Waterways Rally organised by Brandy Wharf Leisure Park.
