May 5th – NOT the Duck Olympics!

May 5th – NOT the Duck Olympics!

Ducks from Rome and Cairo practising on the ice!

Church Stretton’s Annual Duck race is on Saturday May 5th in Carding Mill Valley from 11.00am to 4.00pm.  We were going to call them the Duck Olympics but its against the law (honest!) so please note they are NOT the Duck Olympics, they are just the biggest, best, most exciting, most fun duck races ever.

And despite the fact that it’s NOT the Olympics the field has been widened to allow foreign competitors and already entries are flooding in.  As usual, the National Trust course starts just outside the Carding Mill Valley pavilion and ends…further downstream; and as usual, you can inspect the course from 10.30am onwards.
