Storrington Duck Race has evolved from just 200 ducks in a stream to an annual event which involves community and commercial stalls alongside funfair rides and a car boot sale.
The event is co-ordinated by the Friends of Storrington First School, a registered charity. and really grows each year. All profits made by the school go directly to promoting a rewarding environment for the pupils.
A team of Mums and dads also run side stalls such as Name a Duck, Hook a Duck and a BBQ with locally sourced Burgers and Sausages.
And of course, don’t forget the ducks. 2,000 ducks are sold at £1 each and our volunteers herd them down the stream in 5 races.The last race, a final is always exciting and cash prizes are rewarded.
This event would not happen without the support of the school, parent helpers and local businesses and organisations, all contributing to it’s success.
Let’s hope it continues for many more years to come.
