Tickets are on sale for this year’s South Wingfield Cricket Club Duck Race on Boxing Day.
The annual family fun is set to see lots of rubber ducks racing along the Oakerthope Brook, and there’s seven fabulous prizes up for grabs.
A spokesman for the club said: “Our rubber ducks won’t be getting merry on Christmas Day, as they’ve been training hard, and are raring to race downstream in Oakerthope Brook at 10.30am on Boxing Day.
“The ducks will return to the Cricket Club after the race for mulled wine and a mince pie, so why not join us and take a selfie with your winning duck?”
