Halloween white water event makes a splash!

Local residents were in for a fright this half term with a Halloween themed event held at Lee Valley White Water centre.

Despite the grey skies, over 250 residents got the opportunity to try a variety of different water activities all free of charge on Thursday 29th November.

Residents braved the white water rapids with rafting and hydrospeeding sessions at the London 2012 venue, with some preferring the calmer stand up paddle boarding and water wipeout inflatables on the centre’s lake.

Inside the centre, a selection of crafts were available for younger residents, with spooky face painting and pumpkin carving.

Sophie Phillips, Community Engagement Coordinator said: “It was great to see high numbers of local people benefitting from accessing this fantastic Olympic facility at no cost, giving  residents a chance to get into the water to experience the many activities. It is such a pleasure to work with Broxbourne Council, Lee Valley White Water Centre and Morrisons to make this Halloween event such a success each year, a great example of effective partnership working.”

The event was jointly organised by B3Living, Broxbourne Borough Council and Lee Valley White Water Centre.
