The Duck Race
The Duck Race is a wonderful family oriented FREE event to make use of and celebrate the beautiful River Teise that runs through the village. The event is open to all, where sponsored (numbered) ducks are lowered into the River and quite simply the 1st, 2nd and 3rd duck to cross the finish line, at The Chequers pub, wins a cash prize and the prestige of winning the Duck Race!
The duration of the event really depends on the flow of the river on the day. In previous years it has taken between 1-21/2 hours - a perfect excuse to witness the launch (on the bridge behind the Village shop, off of Millpond 'the sheep field') and then sit in The Chequers Pub garden enjoying a beverage or two, watching the ducks come in.
The event is usually held at midday on the last Saturday of June, however due to lack of volunteers and Covid the race hasn't run since 2018 so we really need YOUR help to re-launch the event in 2022!
