The RAF Association Lechlade Duck Race is back this weekend on a later date than usual, but not even the pandemic can stop the annual tradition that has been held since 2014.

Usually taking place on MayDay, this year's Duck Race has an autumnal setting on September 25 and is aiming to raise money for several worthy causes.

The highlight of the event is race itself, which will see 6000 plastic ducks race down the Thames.

There'll be more for members of the Costwold community to do though, as there'll also be a fair, inflatables, a mobile farm, a climbing wall, a traders village, food stalls and live music and other competitions.

Money raised will go towards three worthy local causes. RAF Association, Cotswold Lakes Trust and ShineBright.

Mike Bevan, Project Officer for the event said: “It’s fantastic to bring the Duck Race back to Lechlade.

"We have a fantastic fun filled family orientated day planned and it will be amazing to see up to 6,000 plastic ducks racing down the Thames to raise money for our brilliant charities.

"We look forward to seeing lots of people there on the day”.

The Duck Race hopes to raise up to £20,000 for the nominated charities.
