Duck Race 2014
The rained held off, and dozens came to witness the duck race down at Pantersbridge on the afternoon of Saturday 9th August 2014. Two hundred ducks were dropped into the stream at the bridge, and everyone then wandered down to the weir to see them arrive, enjoying the barbecue as they waited.
Thanks go to everyone who helped on the day – not least duck chasers Zak, James and Hector Lane, and the throng of young volunteers who dived in to collect them as they arrived; plus of course Alan and Jasmina for doing the barbecue, and Nina for leading the whole event.
And the winners were:
- First prize of £20 for duck number 78, sponsored by Alex N.
- Second prize of £10 for duck number191, sponsored by Ishy R.
- Third prize of £5 for duck number126, sponsored by Rob J., a duck chaser for many years.
