Message from Secretary

2016 almost has drawn to a close, so what have we done this year?

In February we held the Pancake Race at Richmond Cricket, this event had not been ran by Duck Club for some years. We like to Thank all those who took part on the day, also to the two police officers who entered into good old community policing spirit.

May 2nd Annual Duck race sadly this event was yet again not held due to the amount of water running between the start line and the finish. On the day the sun was shining the Duck club committee have a responsibility to it members to ensure there safety at all times. Has Secretary of the club  I had received via Facebook and stop in the street and  from members,  views from  members of the local community and visitors to Richmond asking why the Duck race was not held. At our June meeting it was agreed that we would look to put on a event, using the ducks if we cannot not race then on the river Swale .
