The Duck Race which used to be held in June has now been moved to September to avoid clashing with the Party in the Park and is one of the main fund raising events for the Rotary Club of Ponteland.
It is held in Ponteland Park on the first Sunday in September from 1.30pm to 4pm.
The first race is usually 2.15pm and there is fun for all the family with bouncy castle, fairground organ, children’s games, refreshments and displays.
Race tickets are available from Mackley & Steven Optometrists or any Rotarian.
Proceeds go to Rotary charities – local and international.
