This year saw the 27th annual duck race in Wroughton.

The race was held on 6 May in Willow-Brook Gardens.

The day consisted of five duck races: a children's and an adults' yellow duck race, a business duck race, and an 'anything that floats' race.

New for this year was a small, yellow decorated duck race, where the entrants could keep their ducks afterwards.

There was also a best dressed duck class, which this year was judged by local retired paralympian Louise Hunt-Skelly.

Plenty of stalls, food vendors, ice cream and children's activities meant that it was a great day out for all the family and raised much-needed funds for local children's groups.
