Many thanks to the Lord Mayor of Canterbury, Councillor Terry Westgate for helping get our ducks off to a flying start. Thanks to Westgate Parks and Canterbury City Council for letting us host this wonderful community event yet again this year. A huge round of applause to Canterbury Lifesaving Club for keeping everyone safe and our ducks on twack (quack). And an even bigger round of applause to our wonderful duck rescuers, who braved the water and weed to try and ensure that all the ducks came back to the nest at the end of the race. Thanks also to our sponsors and supporters, including the Kentish Gazette, Gallagher, Thornhill Eco Range Cookers, Direction Law Solicitors and Necessary Furniture.
We're grateful to the folk who 'bought' ducks, and all our duck sellers, including various Rotarians, Iconic Jewellery Store, Fitzgerald Jewellers and Five Elements Beauty.
