Having spent the past few months on the river training with the St Neots Dragonboat Team, three of our Staff recently took the plunge alongside their more experienced teammates to enter their first competitive races at the National Finals in Nottingham - and now they're hooked!
Anthony Charters, Emma Rigby (Lettings), and Rachel Nundy (Accounts) spent the weekend at the National Watersports Centre competing against teams from across the country, in 200m sprint heats. They even managed to bag a 1st place in the Charity Race (and a big chunky gold medal)!

The crew from Lovetts first set foot on a Dragonboat in August, having decided to enter a team at the St Neots Dragonboat Festival. Although the event was cancelled in tragic circumstances, one positive to emerge was our link up with the Club. A number of our staff have since become signed-up members, and are looking forward to racing much more in the future!
Lettings Director Anthony Charters said "The set-up at St Neots Dragonboat club is just fantastic. With such welcoming trainers and great facilities, it really is an exceptionally inclusive, affordable sport for all. The members instantly make you feel part of the family!".
A big well done to all involved at Team Lovetts - and a big thank you to St Neots Dragonboat Team for their patience!!
"Service was outstanding and David always very helpful. We would not use anyone else."
