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 first to cross the finish line, win cash prizes and the prestige of winning the Duck Race! For 2022 the cash prizes will be awarded for 1st £100, 2nd £50, 3rd £25. In addition 5 lucky dip prizes will be drawn from all the ducks that cross the finishing line ( hopefully all of them)
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 village pub gardens enjoying a beverage or two, watching the ducks come in.
The event will be held this year on the 16th July 2022 from 13:30 with all money raised being donated to charities supporting Ukraine. The race is expected to end around 15:00 / 16:00 with BBQ food and music at the George and Dragon Pub.
