Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust

Heritage Day 2015 Duck Race

DuckOnce again the grand finale for Heritage Day will be the Cobham Heritage Day Duck Race which takes place at 4pm between the Cobham Mill and the Riverhill Platform. The proceeds from the race help to fund Heritage Day and to fund projects undertaken by the Cobham Heritage Trust.

8000 numbered ducks will be released by the Mill and will race to the finish line. The first 28 ducks will win cash prizes for their matching duck ticket owners.

Duck tickets will be sold on the day and in advance on various days and locations before Heritage Day. For a full list of locations and times please see below.

In previous years we have sold out during the day, so buying them early ensures you have a chance of winning one of the 28 cash prizes.

The prizes are:-

  
1st Prize £250
  2nd Prize £200
  3rd Prize £100
Five further prizes of £50 and twenty more of £10.

" I have been in touch with both volunteers and they certainly enjoyed their day in spite of the weather. They made some useful contacts as well. I am pleased that your turnout wasn’t affected too much by the weather." - Pets as Therapy - Heritage Day Stallholder
