There is only one place to be on Sunday 7th May and that is at the annual Storrington Village Duck Race which promises thrills and spills as the ducks race to glory alongside a great range of entertainment for all.
Join us from midday on Sunday 7th May at Riverside Walk and Library Car Park to race ducks and raise money for the Friends of Storrington First School.
There will more hotly contested races this year with 6 heats; the top ten ducks from each heat being entered into the Grand Finale, making 7 races in all.
Ducks for each race are on sale now and can be bought in advance in the days leading up to the big day, or on the day itself from the many volunteers in the village. Prizes are on offer for each of the heats with Cash prizes available for the winning ducks in the Grand Finale.
To add to the fun, there will be fun-fair rides and face-painting, craft stalls, music, ice-cream and cakes plus the ever popular BBQ.
All proceeds from the Duck Race will go to Storrington First School to provide and maintain facilities and equipment for the children.
