Coming up: Duck Race – Saturday 6th May

Duck Race preparations have been underway to get Stretton’s brook running well for this years Annual Charity Duck Race.

Splash off is 4pm on Saturday 6th May, but other events will be taking place before hand with children’s face-painting, tattoos and a BBQ running at the Oak and Black Dog. Tickets can be bought in advance from the Brookside Stores or on the green prior to the race – there’s over 30 prizes including £100 cash for the first duck past the post!
