Messing About on the River

The sun shone and the Pimm's flowed at the inaugural Holles Boat Club event at Henley Regatta last weekend (2 July 2022), which was hosted by LEH alumna and Head of Rowing Abby Johnston.

The sell-out event, held jointly with Hampton School, proved to be a popular addition to the alumnae calendar with guests declaring that they’d love to return again next year. The Hampton chef made a delicious chicken and chorizo paella, as well as a yummy vegan version.

Abby, Class of 2007, who holds the word record alongside her team mates for the fastest trio of women ever to cross the Atlantic, raised a toast to the new Holles Boat Club which was set up in 2020 just before lockdown put a hold on all events.

“We hope this will be the first of many alumnae rowing events,” she told the guests, several of them proudly wearing their distinctive red and white striped LEHBC blazers. “LEH has an impressive track record for achieving at the highest levels in the junior competitions and are proud to have held the National School Regatta title on several occasions. We look forward to seeing our alumnae of all ages back out on the water!”

If you are interested in joining the Holles Boat Club, please sign up on the Clubs page and you will be kept up to date with future plans.
