Racing Duck Invasion

Ever seen 1,400 plastic ducks racing down Leigh Creek? You have now!

Our Scouts have been out helping the Lions Club of Leigh-on-Sea with their annual duck race in Old Leigh, shepherding the swarm of yellow ducks in their race along the creek. Starting at Bell Wharf as the tide started to flood, the flotilla made its way to the finish line by the Peter Boat, where they were gathered up in one of our rowing dinghies and transported back to The Den.  The ducks are sold at £1 each to raise money for local charities, with a prize for the first 3 across the line.
