Lions Fun Day 2003 took place at the Riverside Gardens on Sunday
27 July. Although the weather was not brilliant, it did remain dry
for the various events. The usual duck race had to be abandoned
this year, being replaced by a draw instead, as the Sea Cadets'
boat unfortunately broke down at the last minute and they were unable
to launch the ducks into the river.
show included various children's events and races. I particularly
enjoyed the sheep dog demonstration, during which the dogs guided
sheep and ducks both inside and outside (deliberately, I might add)
the fenced off area. To a sheep farmer, I guess this is a pretty
every day thing but I was amazed at how well trained the dogs are!
