Duck Race Was A Great Family Event

Sunday 30th October saw the duck race take place down Mill Lane. The weather was very kind as the sun shone and the rain stayed away!

The 120 little yellow ducks entertained a large crowd of family and friends who turned out to cheer on their duck.

There was great excitement as children and adults alike raced across the bridge to see which numbered duck would emerge from under the bridge first, hoping their duck wouldn't get distracted by the duck weed at the sides of the beck and which one would reach Richard C and Matt S first.

6 races took place and prizes includes a Christmas hamper, Veg box, Chylde's Play voucher, Swimming lessons, a voucher for a Haircut & Christmas Cake, so well done to all the winners.

The hearty cup of soup was most welcome to keep the Autumnal chills away.

The event raised £238 for the church.

Thanks to all those who organised the event, selling the duck numbers, making soup, clearing beck so the ducks could race under the bridge and setting the ducks off and collecting them all up.

A great event and we will look forward to the next one.
