The Great Anton Duck Race

The Great Anton Duck Race’ to take place on Bank Holiday Monday. There will be six races during the afternoon, the first race commencing at 1.30 pm or thereabouts, each one being sponsored by a local company. 200 tickets are being sold for each race during the lead up to the day (market place on the previous Thursday and Saturday), and primary schools too are being encouraged to buy ducks for each race.
