On your marks, get set, quack! by the River Pont

Dozens of people will be going quackers at an annual event on Sunday.

The 25th anniversary running of Ponteland Rotary Club’s Duck Race will take place between 1.30pm and 4.30pm.

Around 500 ducks and boats made by children will be used in different races on the River Pont, with a huge range of prizes to be won. A new addition is a local produce market and there will also be a bouncy slide, cake stall, tombola, face-painting and coconut shy.
