Pictures of the Canvey Police Raft ‘Soggy Panda’ which was entered into the Southend Raft Race over a number of years.  The first 2 are practice in Tewkes Creek 1980 the last one is at Southend Sea front prior to the race in 1981..   You might recognise a number of the crew….I am certainly there.

  • Come on Tony & Graham, when was Small Gains Creek renamed “TEWKES CREEK”. It would be great to have a charity boat race like this across Thorney Bay some time, if Health & Safety would allow it!

  • Yea, O.K. I plead guilty to lack of observation but you’ll have to take Tony to task for the actual captions. Anway thanks for putting ‘The Night the Thames Caught Fire’ story on.
