To mark the centenary aspect of this years Wellingborough Festival, the RDFC float also encapsulated the idea, featuring aspects of Rushden Town, Irthlingborough Diamonds and RDFC.
Some fans were dressed in early 1900’s period dress, and others in various more modern strips. We were distributing leaflets about upcoming club games – especially to the many Arsenal and Tottenham fans in the crowd, as well as giving out sweets to the kids.
The RDFC float came 3rd in its catagory, behind Wellingborough Town FC`s float.
The handsome RDFC models, based on none other than Andy Burgess.

Pete the Barman (for eventually making it to Wellingborough, despite the bus problems – you heard they were doing drinks for 80p in Bar Life on Friday apparently – sounds like a good promotion to me, and something to be considered
