Annual duck race

April 13 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

This years race will be in support of the Hertford and Ware sea cadets.

Pop in and pick up a duck £7.50 each – decorate your duck – Prizes for race winners and best decorated.

The rules are:

Only ducks purchased from here are admissable in the race.

Ducks must be returned a week prior to race day in time for judging.

Ducks will be dropped from The Folly bridge – to a designated finishing line (Roughly to the metal steps in the river on the Waitrose side) where our duck catchers extraordinaire (Hertford & Ware sea cadets) will take note of first to third place and catch all the stragglers.

Stick around at the end of the race to claim your duck to take home and see if you’ve won a prize!

Rules on decorating:

No rules!

Leave him naked, colour him in, paint him, attach a sail, put him on a raft, fit him with a motor! There are no limits to your imagination.

But please do not cover the number on the bottom of your duck as this is used for identification purposes.
