Annual Duck Race:
Once again we had a fantastic day at our annual duck race. We must have had loads of prayers for good weather because the sun shone all day long on us and we saw none of the torrential rain that seemed to fall all around us. Thanks to all the families who came back and supported us on the day and also to all who sold and bought lines on the duck cards. Many thanks as always to John, Helen and all the staff in Quinn’s De Bucket Bar & Restaurant for hosting us – and been so helpful in every aspect. Thanks to Mick Roberts for giving his afternoon to give us all a running commentary and many laughs in what has become an annual tradition for him too
