Businesses are being encouraged to sponsor this year’s annual duck race in Wilberfoss.

The event, on the village beck, will be held on Easter Sunday, 27 March, starting at about 2pm. Last year’s event attracted more than 500 visitors and raised in excess of £2,000 to fund local activities and groups. All sponsors get numerous mentions during the commentary between races, plus there will be a banner across the footbridge where the ducks are launched showing all the companies that have sponsored the event.
