Annual Duck Race







Every year we have an annual duck race in our village. We all purchase a duck and then 500 rubber ducks are set free up the river to travel about half a mile to the weir. They all tumble over the weir, pop up again eventually and 'race' to the finish line. It took well over 2 hours this year as the current was so slow, but it's been a beautiful day and so many villagers turned out for it.
