La Rosa Hill Challenge

Every year we organise the LA ROSA HILL CHALLENGE which involves swimming the river and climbing the opposite hill.  The Challenge first started with just recording the times it took our grandmother, Claire, and her friends to get to the top of the opposite hill.  We have records going back to the 1920s in the visitors books at La Rosa.  Some famous port names are there, some people have 'failed' by their names!

It isn't hard to do unless you want to beat the best time at under 30 minutes.  I prefer a more leisurely 2 hours which is also acceptable.  It is meant to be fun.  Importers and their customers come to participate as well as friends and family.  We finish off with a hearty lunch back at La Rosa.

Next Challenge is Saturday 22nd June - so do book in -
