Again a busy year awaits the Richmond Duck Club. Our calendar of events is packed as ever and we look forward to bringing enjoyment to the people of Richmondshire, and hopefully raising some money for children from the area along the way.
Whit Monday Parade (7th May)
We are already approaching May bank holiday and our annual Duck Race down the River Swale. 2500 plastic ducks crashing into the Swale is a spectacular sight. As ever we hope for decent weather and a fair (but not too strong current) to take the winning ducks to the finishing line.
Whit Monday Parade (28th May)
This year the Duck Club will be entering the Whit Monday parade with the Richmond Round Table. You’ll have to wait to see what the theme is, but fingers crossed we can get first prize (again!).
Sports Day (27th August)
The Sports Day is the focus for the Duck Club. We aim to provide fun for all the family with traditional games and races. Last year the sun shone on Richmond, smiles were abound on the participants and spectators alike. Let’s hope for a similar 2018.
Christmas Lights Switch-On (30th November)
Christmas always comes early to Richmond and Santa will be there again this year to help switch the Christmas lights on. This year we expect to renew a number of the old lights, so 2018 will be even more spectacular.
