Canterbury Duck Race postponed until 25th September

As a mark of respect following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Canterbury Rotary Club has postponed the annual Canterbury Duck Race scheduled for this coming Sunday, 11th September, for two weeks.

The race will now take place on Sunday 25th September at Westgate Gardens at the same time of 1.00pm. Please also note that a limited number of ducks will be available near the entrance to Westage Gardens for sponsorship before the race on race day – please get there in plenty of time to avoid disappointment.

Commenting on the postponement, the President of Canterbury Rotary Club, Tony Loughran, said: “Whilst we live in very different times from when Elizabeth II became Queen it was felt that going ahead was the not the right option when we could seek a short postponement”. He added: “The Rotary Club is grateful to Canterbury City Council for promptly agreeing to the postponement and it will now be held on Sunday 25th September at 1.00pm”.
