Duck Race and Family Fun Day
Sunday 20 May 2018 11:00 - 16:00
Date and time
There will be a variety of duck races to watch, including a special challenge race this year. Local celebrities and businesses will also be getting involved by decorating large rubber ducks who will go beak to beak in the river.
This year will be bigger and better than ever. Entry is still free but please enter a duck in a race for just a £1.
As well as duck racing, with some fabulous prizes for the winners, there will be sideshows including:
- a bouncy castle
- dancing groups
- craft stalls
- and much more including a few special surprises
Last year we had hundreds of families turn up on the day. Many used our yellow Duck Bus Park and Ride service. This year we will have 3 free buses running throughout the day between Bramhall Village (Pizza Express) and the park, as well as Hazel Grove High School and Stockport Rugby Club. Track them with the app on our website. Please use the buses if you can but if you have to come in a vehicle, please park carefully and respectfully.
Extra parking will be available at Linney Road Scout Hut.
Money raised this year will be shared between children's charities and Pure Insight. Pure Insight provide practical and emotional support to young people aged 16 to 28 who have left or are about to leave statutory care. Their projects address a range of serious issues including homelessness, loneliness and isolation, poor mental/physical health and lack of opportunities. They also support young care leavers in developing skills, confidence, talents and resilience.
We are pleased to announce that Redrow Homes, currently creating the Woodford Garden Village, have agreed to sponsor this event along with Barclays Bank plc. Home Instead Senior Care based in Stockport and Stockport Council are also giving us their support.
