Illuminations Village Evening & Favourite

On a pleasant autumn evening at the end of September many of the residents and traders of Matlock Bath gathered in the Derwent Gardens to see the illuminated boats parade on the river for the Illuminations Village Evening. It has been a tradition for many years that the village vote for their favourite boat and prizes are awarded by the Parish Council to the builders of the three most popular boats. It was a perfect evening for the parade and the boats did not disappoint. Over 120 votes were cast and the prizes were presented to the winners on Saturday 12th October. The winners were:

Long Wei - The Motley Crew

Igloo - David Gregory

Vanessa - Isabel Flavell

Congratulations to all the boats - what a wonderful lot they were this year.

Our thanks go to the boat builders for giving their time at the Village Evening. After the parade, we all gathered at the Temple Hotel where the Parish Council provided a barbeque of burgers kindly prepared by the Hotel. The weather was even kind enough to let us eat them outside.

5th October sees the first night of the fireworks at the Illumination and the boats will parade both before and after the firework display which is at 9pm.
