If you are interested in the River Ouse, come to our wonderful Lewes regatta and raft race this Sunday, July 19, from 2pm to 5.30pm. 21 rafts race from Wiley's Bridge by Tesco down to Newhaven, plus flotilla boats, sea shanties, canoe races, riverbank BBQ and battle of the bonfire boats. Best party on Ouse since 1910.See it all at Malling Rec. Buy a souvenir programme for half-price ice, get a pin badge to prove you were there.

Hi Brendon, What time do the rafts take off from Wileys bridge to Newhaven, also how far up do the other craft go ie Flotillas, Sea shanties, Canoe races etc. Only I was hoping to see the rafts go by up near Southerham. Does that mean I miss the rest.

I sing of a river where I drink ma cheap booze. The song that ah sing is the song of the Ouse. Of all Sussex' rivers it's dearest tae me. It borders the pond o' the Pells aye fair and wanders tae Newhaven and the scrapyard near there. But from Shortbridge (The Peacock) tae Harveys brew'ry ah've stood on it's banks and taken a pee. Och the Ouse the Ouse the wonderful Ouse It's where I do sit and drink ma cheap booze. So when ah'm a gonner an' they lay me to rest dinnae chuck ma ashes in Barcombe it's a place I detest .

Brendan. Can you give times for everything? All the advertising I've seen has no mention of what's happening when and a lot of people will be keen to see a specific part of the day but not all of it. Thanks
