On a beautiful summer day in 2018 by the river in Godalming, Woolsack Rotary Club organised a fun alternative to the ubiquitous Summer Fete.   It has now become firmly established as an annual event. 

The Great Godalming Duck Race involves multiple heats of several hundred yellow plastic ducks racing down a short stretch of the River Wey.    Tickets - one ticket allocated to each duck - are sold in advance and on the day, so that spectators can cheer on their duck, in the hope of winning a prize.

With other stalls, food and entertainment on the Bury's Field, it is a fun day out for all the family.
