Every summer, the Lions Club of Sidmouth stages their Great Duck Derby on the River Sid to raise money for local charities.

The ‘Duck Derby’ consisted of two large Duck races on the River Sid, between Sid Park Road and Salcombe Road bridges,

With all the ducks jostling to be the leader and the first yellow duck to reach the ‘finishing line’ at the weir by Waterloo Bridge, Salcombe Road, earning its owner the winner’s prize everyone followed them with great anticipation.

Their were additional attractions for children, including Duck & Spoon races, other fun games, a Big Slide and Bouncy Castle and tastey ice creams and a great time was had by all!

Devon in Sight,  would like to thank the Sidmouth Lions for their very generous donation!
