This year’s Ely Aquafest is planned to go ahead as normal after a two-year absence following lockdown and Covid-19 regulations. 

The Rotary Club of Ely and the Hereward Rotary Club have decided to go ahead with Aquafest on Sunday July 3. 

Viv Doji, chair of the Rotary Aquafest Committee, said: “After a two-year absence, we are back! 

“We will be returning with all the usual stalls, fun fairs and arena entertainment. 

“The ever-popular raft races will also be back. This year’s theme is the Queen / Royalty and there are trophies to be won. 

“Now is the time to get a team and build your raft. The more rafts the merrier".
