An endearing tradition in Bitterne Park is the annual charity 'duck race.' A multitude of sponsored plastic ducks is released at Mansbridge, and float down the river with the hope of reaching Woodmill first and winning their sponsors a prize - provided they don't get stuck along the way. While not a swift race, the leisurely pace is part of the event's charm. Hundreds of all ages gathered as usual to cheer on their ducks and, in doing so, support the charitable endeavours of Eastleigh Lions. We hope to bring you the winning numbers soon!
