Our Duck Race ducks are following UK Government advice which gives only four reasons to leave the house. They know this is really important, although it means that they can't always do the usual things they do.
At the moment the Government advises that you should only leave the house for one of four reasons:
• shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as
• one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your
• any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.
• travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home.
So although the water in the Little Stour looks tempting (but cold, brrr), our Duck Race ducks are sticking to a healthy walk for exercise while making sure they maintain social distance. Well done ducks!
Note: At the moment The Rotary Club of Canterbury still plans to hold its Annual Duck Race later in the year - but we'll keep you posted here if plans change.
