Brief History About The Duck Race

Our Annual Duck Race is the group’s main source of fund raising, when over 2,000 yellow plastic ducks take to the water at Combs Meadow.

With each of the ducks individually sponsored, this is a fun event for all the family with everyone hoping that their duck will be one of the first over the line to claim a prize. This year will be our twenty-ninth year; this has become an important part of the local calendar. Various attractions and stalls, making it a great afternoon’s entertainment.

The purpose of the event is to raise funds to support scouting for young people in our group, ranging in age from 6 to around 18. Typically, the money raised helps us to maintain our Scout Centre.
