Roll Up Roll Up for the annual New Mills Duck Race!

New Mills Festival, along with the PTAs from local primary school’s and nurseries have again joined forces to organise this year's Duck Race to raise funds for the co-promoters.

The event, which features a race specially for local businesses and a schools race as well as the public competition has cash prizes and trophies for the winning ducks. The event will be held on Sunday June 23rd from 12.00pm. The route will be along the River Goyt, starting near the viaduct and Goytside Farm. Please note access is by foot only, please use the town carparks if travelling by car.

New Mills Festival volunteer and Duck Race Committee member Rachel Walker says: “With nearly 1500 participants last year’s event proved so popular that we have decided to expand a little bit…there will be entertainment, lots of activities and refreshments. It’s great collaborating with such a big group of people… a lot of fun and fantastic that all the co-organisers can work together raising much needed funds in the process. It’s what our community is all about!”
