Lion President's Message

Lions Duck Race 2022


Another great day for Buxton & District Lions 2022 Carnival Day Duck Race, held on the River Wye in the Pavilion Gardens, on Saturday 9th July.  The race started at 4.30 p.m. in only 20cms of slow moving water with a stiff breeze providing many mishaps on the course for the record 2,500 entries this year.


This year Duck 1743 owned by Peter from Harpur Hill won the £100 prize with Oliver from Cote Heath coming in a close 2nd with Duck 1832.  Mr Edge also from Cote Heath came in 3rd with Duck 47 concluding an exciting finish for this years race.


Buxton and District Lions would like to thank Fairfied Infants School, the staff at Morrisons, Buxton Rotary and all the other helpers who supported this event.
