North Wiltshire RSPCA and Old Town Rotary Club are getting together this year for what they hope will be the first of many collaborations.
The RSPCA annual dog show and the Rotary duck race are being held on the same day, Bank Holiday Monday 4 June, at the Wescott Recreation Ground, opposite The Running Horse on Wootton Bassett Road, Swindon.
Dog registrations start at 10am with the first class starting at 11am. Classes include the dog with the waggiest tail, the dog that looks most like its owner, and the best rescue dog.
The duck race will start between 3.30pm and 4pm. Ducks will be sold in aid of Hop Skip & Jump, with 50 per cent to other Rotary charities.
There will also be activities for children, cake stalls, tombola stalls, face painting, hot and cold refreshments.
• Ducks can be purchased from Asda West Swindon, Co-op Old Town, Sainsbury’s Bridgemead, The Running Horse Pub and other venues.
