The Sump Event Review: 22nd June 2014

Posted on

Good Evening All

Here is a report from our recent trip to “The Sump” in Burton on Trent back on June 22nd. This report is courtesy of Linda G.


What a great day on Sunday 22nd June at The Sump, Newton Road, Burton on Trent.

Our thanks go to landlord and landlady, Martin and Jenna,who made us feel most at home within the beautiful setting of the river and people picnicking in boats upon the weir.

We met many wonderful and interesting people and raised some funds in the process (£66). Along with Brian the Boa, Arkwright (David S!) remained on form for his assisting the public in our plight although in good distance of Brian!!

The Sump also donated some of the money raised on the day and Martin is keen to peruse his training and Jenna has volunteered to train as controller.


It is clear that this event was a success. To have gained a potential new rider and controller is brilliant news and we look forward to Martin and Jenna joinng the SSBB ranks very soon. If you too are interested in joining us, then why not take a look at our “Join Us” page which has a lot more information about who we are and what we do.
