Ramsbottom Duck Races and Chocolate Festival 2016

Ramsbottom Duck Races and Chocolate Festival 2016

Some of our intrepid members helped once more at the Rotary Club's Annual Duck Races, held in conjunction with the Chocolate Festival in Ramsbottom. This year, instead of having to share a tent with the "Kiddies' Boat Building" entries we borrowed a 'tent' from BSAC. The better than usual weather attracted more crowds and this resulted in many more people making enquiries and taking information leaflets from Elaine, Heather and Hilary. Other Club members (Mike L, Wayne, Mike C, Kellie and Lynda) ventured into the River Irwell and were on the finishing line to collect the three winning entries in each of the four races, ably assisted on dry land by Nic and Chris A.
