Lion President's Message

Lions Duck Race 2022


Buxton & District Lions Club are getting ready for the 2022 Carnival Day Duck Race.  It takes place on the River Wye in the Pavilion Gardens, on Saturday 9th July at 4.15 p.m., after the Carnival Parade has finished. To take part, simply purchase a ticket for £1 and then join the cheering crowds lining the banks of the river.


Tickets will be on sale at Morrison’s supermarket from Monday 4th to Friday 8th July, then during the race day itself, on the Pavilion Gardens promenade. Your ticket will show a number which corresponds to the number on the duck. The first three ducks home win their ticket holders £100, £50 and £25 respectively. It’s great fun and all proceeds go to local charities.


Buxton Lions meet at the Cavendish Golf Club and anyone interested in helping us should contact us at or ring Tony Huxford on 01298 24796.
