Middle Rasen Duck Race

The New Year's Day event is a high spot in the winter social calendar for the village As usual, it will start at 12 noon from Parry's Bridge on Low Church Road and finished when the last duck passes under the bridge on Church Street, next to Naylor's Drive.

Paying to race a yellow plastic duck before the event costs just £1. Once named by you, it will be added to all the other ducks and launched onto the River Rase at 12 noon on New Years Day.


Ron Folgate and the MRasenDR group are looking for donors/sponsors of prizes and would like to hear from local groups wishing to benefit from the event.
