It's "quacks away" for the duck race once again on Easter Monday (April 9th) thanks to the Lymm and District Round Table.
The popular annual event, sponsored by 235 Consulting, takes place in Lymm village, with the race beginning at 12.30pm. A wide range of food stalls and children’s entertainment will be open from 10.30am.
“We broke all records last year by raising over £5,000 for charity and local causes so we have a lot to live up to this time around,” said John Edwards, organiser and enthusiastic Round Table member. “We’re hoping some good weather will bring out the crowds again in support of this great community event.
“We’re particularly keen this year to hear from businesses who may wish to get their name out there in front of hundreds of local folk, either as one of the main sponsors or by buying a corporate or super duck. We’ve already got Kids Planet Day Nursery, The Coffee House, Ridgeway Residential and Gascoigne Halman on board so our sincere thanks goes out to them.”
Racing duck tickets can be bought online - normal duck tickets are priced at £1, with corporate ducks £30 and super ducks £60. The first duck over the line receives £100, second place £50 and third £25.
Alternatively, tickets are on sale by The Cross, Lymm, on the four Saturdays preceding Easter Monday and you can also buy them on the day. If you are interested in sponsorship or have an idea for running a stall, then email John or call on 07772 235235.
