Solva Duck Race

Easter Monday 21st April 2014 start 3pm


This popular village event takes place annually on Easter Monday at 3pm. The 50 'contestants', who all have names, are launched into the River Solva at a point between the village and Middle Mill. They then bob their way downstream to the finishing line at the pedestrian bridge at the Foreshore car park. See past pictures from the day.

To buy a 20th share in a duck, tickets are on sale for 1 from Solva Post Office (Bay View Stores, Upper Solva) and at other businesses and all pubs in the village and from committee members. All profits help the running costs of Solva Memorial Hall.

Winners in 2013:

1st  Victor    2nd Tomos    3rd April

The Gamlin play area is close to the 'finish line' and is ideal for occupying the children whilst the race is going on!

Come and join in the fun -

21st April 2014 in Solva
