The ever-popular Lymm Duck Race returns on Easter Monday (March 28th) thanks to Lymm and District Round Table.

Kindly sponsored by the Co-Op food stores once again, the race starts at 12.30pm with children’s entertainment and stalls, plus the ‘Easter Food Fest’ on Henry Street car park – next to the youth and community centre – all open from 10.30am.

“The Duck Race has helped to raise tens of thousands of pounds for charity over the years so we’re determined to keep the momentum going and put on a good event for the local community once again,” said Nick Bond, organiser and Round Table member. “We’re hoping for a good day weather-wise and we encourage everyone from Lymm and beyond to come down and cheer on the ducks!”

Racing duck tickets can be bought online at www.lymmduckrace.co.uk - normal duck tickets are priced at £1, with corporate ducks £30 and super ducks £60. The first normal racing duck over the line receives £100, second place £50 and third £25, with the winning corporate duck nominating £500 to a local charity, and the winning superduck nominating £1,000.

Alternatively, tickets are on sale by The Cross, Lymm, on the three Saturdays preceding Easter Monday and you can also buy them on the day.

If you are interested in sponsorship then contact Rik Wilson on 07766 461944 or sponsorship@lymmduckrace.co.uk. If you would like to run a stall then email stalls@lymmduckrace.co.uk
