Hurworth Duck Race 2022
Hurworth Duck Race 21st August 12.00pm
This year’s event has been slightly changed. The ducks will start off around 12.00pm at the Ringfield, accompanied by Handel’s Water Music. Once the ducks are released, they will take about 30 minutes to get to the Steel Bridge, opposite the Otter and Fish.
Unfortunately, it looks like the bridge will be closed on the day (it’s not a public right of way). So, this year Peter Allan has kindly agreed to let us use the bottom of his garden next to the river.
I have strimmed a small pathway through to the river, which you can use to pass through to Peter’s garden. Also, you can watch the ducks at the old ford, which is a right or way. If you are brave enough, you can even cross the river at this point, and watch from the other side.
After the race, at the Grange Community Centre, there’ll be a band, food van and hopefully a bouncy castle. As well as this, the bar will be open for people to have a lovely afternoon.
Any questions, please ask.
