Great Godalming Duck Race & Fete

20 May, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

If you go down to the River today, you’re sure of a Quacking Surprise!! Come along and witness Godalming’s first ever Great Godalming Duck Race.

Daffy fun for all the family; don’t miss your chance to sponsor a duck and watch it paddle to victory along our very own River Wey. Dress up as a duck, wear something yellow, visit the tea and cake tent – eggstraordinary spring-time fun!

The Fete will start at 11.00am and run until 4.00pm. The first Duck Race will start at 12.00 Noon with heats every 20 minutes until the Grand Final for the heat winners.

Heat winners will win £20; prizes of £250, £100 and £50 for the first three places of the Grand Final.

Music will be provided on the Bandstand by The Accidentals and the Rodborough School Jazz Band.

Tickets cost £1 each and can be purchased from Godalming Schools and youth organisations, Record Corner and The Cellar Cafe.

Many of the local schools and youth groups are involved in promoting the Race and selling tickets and some will have stalls at the Fete. The schools and groups that sell tickets will received a donation of 25% of the value of the tickets they sell.

Money is being raised in aid of Shooting Star Chase, a leading children’s hospice charity caring for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families.
