A fantastic turnout of hundreds of people of all ages at Cresswell Quay on Saturday saw the Narberth and Whitland Rotary Club<>s Duck Race, Pig Roast and Veggie Stalls. The sun was shining, the tide was in bringing with it a flotilla of sailing and motor boats to weigh anchor at the small quay opposite the Cresselly Arms pub.

At 8pm on the High tide the numbered plastic ducks were launched by Adrian Thomas from Narberth & Whitland Round Table. He skillfully guided them away from the grassy river bank using his canoe and they then sailed gracefully down the river. Thanks to Adrian <> for collecting them up afterwards.

During the evening 20 Rotarians had various tasks including selling the ducks, serving the pig, ably carved up by award-winning butcher Andrew Rees, and other Rotarians served the vegetarian food. This delicious and colourful culinary cuisine was donated by businesses from the area.

The members of the club wish to express their sincere thanks to The Grove Hotel, Megna Cuisine, Get Stuffed Pizza House, The Contented Sole, The Amroth Arms, Ultracomida, Tavernspite Garden Centre and Maria's Tapas bar at Picton Castle. These businesses were extremely generous in the variety of food they donated.

During the evening until 9pm Music Maestro Jack Castle, a solo guitarist and vocalist kept the spectators entertained with a wide repertoire of 60's rock and blues number. He performed under cover from the show trailer supplied by Gravell's narberth. From that vantage point club President Tony Ensom used the microphone to announce cheque presentations to Blood Bikes Pembs, Narberth First responders, RNLI, Pembroke Ladies Guild<>, Tenovus Cancer Care<> and Wales Air Ambulance<>. The money resulted from the proceeds of the That'll be the day Concert at Folly Farm held by the Rotary club in July.

The Duck race 1ST Prize of £50.00 was won by Mrs Ballard a visitor on holiday she wants the winnings donated to the First Responders.

President Tony also offered thanks to Colin and John Evans the landlords at the Quay for an excellent welcome as always. It was a really good night of fellowship which ended up in the bar until lat
