Champion - Harry

Well done to all the winners and special congratulations to Harry! Reigning Champion for 2017

Ducks 1 and 6 were especially successful and Duck 9 was the overall champion, there was one suspected incidence of ducknapping, duck 1 sank and had to be replaced with a substitute, two ducks took the long way home and had to sit a race out... and two winners of the Duck Race totes kindly donated their winnings to the cause.

Meanwhile the Hook-a-Duck was such a success it ran out of prizes! and the queues for face painting were huge - with lots of lovely designs including at least one duckling!

The delicious smell of crepes wafted over everyone making us all very hungry the BBQ was very popular and almost sold out, the Raffle was very well supported and many went home with more than they brought.

Massive thanks to all who came and had fun, all who helped setting up, running things and taking down - and all the ducks of course.
