Roll Up Roll Up for the annual New Mills Duck Race!
New Mills Festival, along with the PTAs from St George's, St Mary’s, Newtown, New Mills, Hague Bar, Thornsett, Furness Vale Primary Schools and representatives from local nurseries have again joined forces to organise this year's Duck Race to raise funds for the co-promoters.
The event, which this year sees the addition of 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 24th 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!”
Tickets for the ducks priced at £2 each will be on sale soon!
