Stratford Boat Club's Audrey gets a retirement home next to the River Avon





AUDREY is 40 to 50 years old, measures ten metres, has links to the 2012 London Olympics and celebrated her retirement with a top of the table performance at The Boat House by the River Avon last Friday.

Named after Audrey in Shakespeare’s As You Like It, the elegant looking double sculling boat belonging to Stratford-upon-Avon Boat Club, has been decommissioned and given to The Boat House riverside bistro and bar where she now resides in the rafters above the dining tables.
