Duck Race 2013

April’s Duck Race was a quacking success; the weather was reasonable, the soup was hot, the course was clear and the new, improved quality ducks hired from SARA seemed to enjoy their swim. Many thanks to all those who helped on the day, especially those who got wet (some more so than others…) A lot of organisation and hard work go into running this event, and we value everyone’s support, not least in the selling of tickets, which is not easy particularly in today’s economic climate. The winning duck completed the course in about half an hour but many arrived a lot later than that! Here are the results:
