Oakhaven Waterslide 2016Spectators are welcome!

Travelling all the way from Costa Coffee at the junction of New Street to the bottom of the hill and a buffer zone on Gosport Street, the giant inflatable waterslide is an exciting new fundraising initiative by Oakhaven Hospice. The idea was apparently inspired by the Bristol water slide, which was put on a city centre street in 2014. 


The slide opens at 9.45am when sponsors Fred Olsen have a team of 10 going down first!


The event promises to be a great sight - Lymington High Street as you’ve never seen it before! There will be a raffle being held at Fred Olsen, event sponsors, with fantastic prizes on offer.


“This truly exciting and highly unusual fundraising event is going to attract a huge amount of attention” said Mike Denny, Oakhaven Hospice's Head of Fundraising and Communications. “We would like to extend our grateful thanks to Fred Olsen Travel Agents for their kind sponsorship of the event.

“We have worked very closely with our local councils on this, who were understandably keen to know in detail about our plans for marshalling, health and safety and environmentally of course," added Mike. "They have all been very supportive in all respects including our application for a road closure for the day. I think suffice to say Lymington is very excited about this."
