Count­down to duck race

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

RUBBER ducks are lim­ber­ing up and stretch­ing their wings ahead of a spec­tac­u­lar race along the River Dean.

The event, in aid of the East Cheshire Hospice, is be­ing hosted by the Crown Inn.

Sean Brad­bury, from the event, said: “As part of our on­go­ing fundrais­ing for East Cheshire Hospice, The Crown Inn will be run­ning the an­nual Easter duck race down the River Dean.

“Last year’s race was a sell­out, with over 80 ducks rac­ing, and 100 ducks will be avail­able for dec­o­ra­tion this year.

“This long run­ning event has de­lighted fam­i­lies for over 10 years.

“Many chil­dren and adults love the op­por­tu­nity to dec­o­rate their race en­trant and en­joy the won­der­ful at­mos­phere in Bolling­ton.”

The event takes place on Mon­day, March 28, at 2pm.

Ducks are avail­able for pur­chase and dec­o­ra­tion for £5 and all pro­ceeds go to East Cheshire Hospice.

There will be a prize for the first duck across the fin­ish line, as well as the best dec­o­rated duck.
