Bramhall Duck Race Sunday 18th May 2014 – Update

5 Mar 2014

Generously Sponsored by Mosley Jarman Estate Agents this year’s Bramhall duck race is set to be a quacker!

Bramhall And Woodford Rotary Club are, once again, holding the Duck Race and Family Fun Day and this year it will be held at Bramhall Park on Sunday May 18th. The Club is very pleased to announce that Mosley Jarman Estate Agents of Bramhall have not only agreed to sponsoring this event but have stated their intention to support future Duck Race days.

Nick Mosley, a director of Mosley Jarman as well as a local resident said “My colleagues and I went to last year’s event and had a fantastic day, even though our duck did not win! In fact, we turned it into a works day out. We feel that this partnership will allow us to put something back into our local community having been strongly supported by local people and families since we started Mosley Jarman in 2011.”

Sue Preece the President of the Bramhall & Woodford Rotary Club said “I think it is absolutely fabulous that a local business has seen fit to sponsor this event. Along with the continued support of Barclays Bank in Bramhall I am sure that this years Duck Race will be a huge success once again raising a lot of money for two well deserving charities”

Last year we had many hundreds of families turned up on the day. So this year the Club have put in place a traffic management plan part of which is to provide a ‘Park and Ride’ facility. A circular bus service will run throughout the day between Bramhall – Park – Cheadle Hulme – Park – Bramhall. The yellow DUCK BUS  is free and will pick up at Duck Stops en route. Please check our website or our Facebook page for more information Starting at 11.00am, there will be a variety of duck races to enter and there will be speciality races with local celebrities and businesses getting involved by decorating large rubber ducks, who will go beak to beak in the river.

As well as Duck Racing with some fabulous prizes for the winners there will be many sideshows a bouncy castle, games, emergency vehicles, dancing groups and craft stalls along with ImagineFM and much more. There will be a special performance by The Maxine Cherrie Rock Choir and The Wellington St. Stompers. The Bramhall & Woodford Rotary Club will be running the Great Bramhall Bake Off for anyone wanting to show off their baking skills. Some wonderful prizes have generously been donated by local businesses. We are also holding an inaugural Junior Schools Choir competition at the Mosley Jarman stage. We have decided that of the money raised 80% will be shared between Walthew House Stockport and Beacon Counselling. The remaining amount will be distributed to other charities supported by the club.

This year will be bigger and better than ever and entry is still free but please enter a duck in a race for just a pound.
