Unfortunately there will be no Lions Duck Race this year, the concerns about the water quality at Leigh has meant that we do not feel able to hold the race. Watch out for the return of the ducks in 2020, water quality permitting.
2018 Report below
The Lions of Leigh on Sea, held their Duck Race on 5th August 2018
The Lions Club of Leigh on Sea released one thousand four hundred rubber ducks into Leigh Creek on the last of the outgoing tide due to the strong wind that was affecting how they would race.
The Lions were very appreciative of the support of 3rd Chalkwell Bay Scouts, who helped collect the duck after the race.
The four gallant ducks who reach Billet Wharf gained rewards for their ‘owners’ , who will have paid a pound each to ‘back a duck’.
1st No 38 Tim McDonald
2nd No 432 John Sanderson
3rd No 997 Lucy Hollister
4th No 257 Alan Beal
Prizes this year are again Sponsored by Priority Management Services Limited, and the Lions Club of Leigh on Sea are very grateful for this support.
The collection starts, hopefully none escaped!
