Families set to flock to fund-raising fun

Families will be going quackers for some traditional fun in Ponteland this weekend.

The annual Ponteland Rotary Duck Race takes place in the park on Sunday, from 1.30pm to 4pm.

As well as the main event, there will be boat races, magic shows, a bouncy slide, stalls, a raffle, face painting, archery and refreshments.

The event is one of the main fund-raisers organised by Ponteland Rotary Club to support various charities.
