Bramhall Park Duck Race 2022

We must be “Quackers”!

Our first outdoor trip of the year was to Bramhall Park for the duck race which was making a return to the calendar this year.

Organised by the Bramhall & Woodford Rotary Club the event attracted many traders and visitors, and with the weather being good a great day was had by all, including the ducks.

Arriving at the park early on the Sunday morning we soon had the marquee set up in the walled garden close to the cafe and facilities. During the day there were many visitors to the stand including some club members and some with links to the hobby through relatives or even lapsed licensees all interested in what we had to show.

A number of us took the opportunity to have a wander around the event and was pleased to see Walthew House’s Steel Band entertaining the crowds. Thank you to Bob M6TMA, Roy G6RSU, Barrie G6GUT and Derek G8NRU for stopping by.

Thank you to our team Tony M0SAV, Nigel M0VNL, Bill M0WBS, Neil M6NAE, Evan M0TJU and Nigel G0RXA.

Meet our entry in the 12.30 race. Did he win, who knows, but he’s now back with us on the shelf at Walthew House and in training for 2023.
