Swindon’s Famous Duck Race Update

Considering the increasing covid-19 threat, government advice and our social responsibility to reduce the spread of the virus we cannot in good conscience continue to run our fundraising and fun Family Days through the next few months.

We have agreed to postpone the Duck Race Launch Party on the 25 March and the Duck Race and Family Day Out on 25 May.  For those who have already bought tickets we have agreed to the money being refunded unless participants wished to donate their ticket monies to the Trust fund or the charity who sold them the ticket(s).

The Old Town Rotary Council will continue to monitor the situation and to explore alternative dates for the Duck Race.

Breaking News – Another possible date!

We have booked the Westcott Recreation Ground for Swindon’s Famous Duck Race and Family Day Out on Bank Holiday 31 August 2020. We shall wait now to see if we can run the race this year after all. Fingers Crossed!
