Brian Ellis's memorial Bench at Ditton Corner
Brian spent 70 years on the River Cam, rowing, coxing, sculling, racing, coaching. He gave so much of his time to so many people across these years teaching them to row and scull. His favourite place on the river was Ditton Corner, so we are raising money to build a bespoke bench where you can sit and have a quiet moment at a beautiful place and those lucky enough to know him, to have a thought about Brian.

This is from the sale of Dad's bike. I've warned the new owner to be careful if going on the tow path as they may find themselves shouting "legs, legs, legs...….!"

Good to have the reminder to ‘LEGS’ at that magical point on the river.
