Idea for using the Cray on Folk Day

We 'sell' people official 6" x 6" sheets of paper and give them access to origami boat instructions. They then make a boat & put their number on it in marker pen.

Before the start we could have a Concours d'Elegance

Then at the word of command they all drop their boats into the Cray on the far side of the bridge in the High Street. (we could have an ambulance standing by for those who get mown down coming back across the high street)

In the pub garden we stretch a string over the river as a finish line and one of us enters the river to catch the boats as they pass under it.

The winner gets a luxury holiday for two in the Bahamas (or whatever we can run to)
