OUR LAST EVENT - DUCK DERBY, 1:00 PM, SUNDAY 19 JUNE 2022.
The annual Maidenhead Lions Duck Derby was held on Sunday 19th June 2022 on Ray Mill Island.
It was a great summer's day and the Island was awash with families and their pets on a glorious day-out. Rain was forecast and the organisers panicked earlier, but the rain clouds blew past overhead. There was a wonderful selection of local businesses and charities offering handcrafted goods and community services. There was a dedicated Children’s Activities area with music, story telling, face painting and everthing to make the day fabulous for everyone.
At the end of the day there was the Duck Race which was started by the Mayor, Councillor Mrs Christine Bateson and 2500 bright yellow ducks were released to swim (bubble) towards the finishing line in the Thames aided by the local Sea Scouts.
Winning Tickets this year were:
