AND DECENT PORTRAITS – AS ALLUS.

RACE YOUR DUCK – THE TENSE ANTICIPATION IS TOO TOO MUCH – ARE YOU THE MISSING WINNER?
WAITING TO SEE THE LOCAL 1ST JANUARY DUCK RACE AT THE LOCAL RESERVOIR… WHO WON?
AND, AS USUAL, THE DISASTROUS EFFORTS THAT PARADE AS THE LOCAL POPULACE HAVE BEEN AND BROKEN INTO MY HOME AGAIN…

P.S. A staple in the Whitworth calendar, the Annual New Year’s Day Duck Race returns in 2013. Taking place as usual at Cowm Reservoir at 1pm on New Year’s Day, the event is expected to be as popular as ever – in 2012, the event saw over 950 ducks sponsored, with around 250 people attending on the day. The Duck Race is organised jointly between Whitworth Town Council’s Tourism and Leisure Committee and CLAW (the Community Leisure Association of Whitworth). For those unfamiliar with the concept, you ‘sponsor’ a numbered yellow rubber duck for £1.00, which is then entered into the Duck Race. The first one across the line wins, with cash prizes for first, second and third place ducks of £75, £50 and £25. There’s also a fiver for the last duck across the line! Councillor David Chorlton, chair of the Tourism and Leisure Committee, says: “For those who have not been to the Whitworth Duck Race in the past, the sight of hundreds of yellow rubber ducks heading swiftly downstream really is a sight to behold! This has always been a popular event in the Whitworth calendar and, judging by the sale of the ducks so far, 2013 will prove to be no different.” The Duck Race on Tuesday 1 January 2013 kicks off at Cowm Reservoir at 1.00pm. You can sponsor a duck now – sponsor sheets are available at the Whitworth Council Offices, Riverside (Civic Hall), Post Office and UBS and from Whitworth Town Councillors. You’ll also be able to sponsor a duck on the day. For more details, contact Karen Douglas, Town Clerk at Whitworth Town Council…
