Duck Race was last weekend, but we still have some unclaimed Business Ducks and Ducklings. Our Lion Duck is watching over them but we are eager for them to go to their homes, now.

All unclaimed Duck owners have been contacted this week, asking for them to come and pick their ducks up,so please get in touch to arrange a convenient time.

We will be reaching out to our race winners in the next few days to coordinate trophy presentations.

What a fantastic day it was yesterday. Duck Race is a huge undertaking, but we had lots of help along the way and have many thank yous! Thanks go to...

Sainsburys and Tescos Calne who allowed us to pitch up and sell tickets
TK Tackle and Marias who sold tickets on our behalf
Greensquare Accord for allowing us to use the Wharf Gardens
Huws Gray Buildbase Calne for loaning us equipment to stake out the course
Valley View Fencing & Landscaping for the loan of a trailer to help move all our ducks and equipment
Calne Town Mayor, Cllr Robert MacNaughton for judging the Best Dressed Ducks Competition
Rev Casper Bush for blessing the ducks and the event
Eartunes Radio for bringing the music
Abbeyfield Army Cadets for providing first aid support
Calne Clean Up Crew for litter picking during the event and for the loan of equipment to help us tidy up after ourselves at the end.

Thanks also go to our Lions volunteers and friends of Lions who worked together seemlessly to create a fantastic event, before and on the day.

Finally a huge THANK YOU to everyone who entered ducks, bought tickets or turned up on the day. Duck Race couldn't happen without all of you. The town came alive, there was a fantastic atmosphere and because of you all we have raised an amazing amount which we can use to help our local community.

Until next year!
