A splashing time is guaranteed at Woodroffe School’s annual Easter Monday fundraiser

More than 1,000 plastic ducks are expected to set a quacking pace when they race down the Rive Lim this Easter.

The Woodroffe School’s annual fundraiser takes place at noon on Bank Holiday Monday, April 17.

Earlier Lyme Regis Town Crier, Alan Vian, will gather everyone in the centre of town, before leading a procession up to Higher Mill Flats, near Woodmead Bridge, where he will officially start the race.

Duck tickets will be on sale from 10am on the day and at the start line prior to the event – just look out for our Duck Marshalls in yellow jackets.

Each numbered ticket buys the corresponding numbered yellow plastic duck in the race.

There are fantastic cash prizes for the first, second and third ducks over the finish line and a luxury Easter Egg for the last duck that manages to negotiate the perils of the river!
