Quackers day out!

24th May 2010

Sunday 23rd May 2010 saw the inaugral ‘Weldmar Duck Race’ on the River Frome in Dorchester – and what a glorious day it was!

Sunday’s weather couldn’t have been better and the River Frome allowed just enough speed to make the winning post the place to be to view the winners.

There was just enough time to hold two races and there was great excitement at the finish line as ducks drifted into all areas of the river.

Good fun was had by all who supported the race and we plan to make it an annual event.

£250.50 was raised and all the winners have been informed.

We would like to say a special thank you to the volunteers who helped on the day, especially John Aplin who waded into the river to retrieve the ducks, and everyone who sponsored a duck for the race.
