Last year we had hundreds of families turn up on the day many of whom used our new DUCK BUS Park & Ride service. So this year the Club will, once again, have not only one but TWO free buses running throughout the day between Bramhall Village (Pizza Express) and the Park plus Hazel Grove High School and Stockport Rugby Club.  Track them with the app on our website ( and then look out for the yellow DUCK BUS.

Extra parking will also be available at Linney Road Scout Hut. Please use them if you can but, if you have to come in a vehicle, please park carefully and respectfully.

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. There will also be a special challenge race this year.  As well as Duck Racing with some fabulous prizes for the winners there will be many sideshows a bouncy castle, games, singers, dancing groups and craft stalls along with ImagineFM and much more. This year we will have the Chinese Lion Dance, a demonstration of Krav Maga (real-life self defence), ferret racing, a Ride on Train and Zorb Balls! The Shetland Ponies will be with us again too. We also have three brass bands playing in the Walled Garden area.

The Bramhall & Woodford Rotary Club will be hosting the final of the Great Bramhall Bake Off and holding a fourth Junior Schools Choir competition following the success of previous years.

We have decided that money raised will be shared between Beacon Counselling, which supports adults, young people and children experiencing mental and emotional distress, and other charities supported by the Rotary 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.
