Duck Trail
The Duck Trail was introduced in 2017 and has quickly become a popular addition to Show weekend. Last year hundreds of people followed the trail around the village to admire the creativity and duck-tastic ingenuity of the displays. Villagers are encouraged to make a duck-themed display in their gardens to last for the Saturday of the Show and the day after. Duck Trail maps are available from the marquee on the afternoon of the Show and can also be downloaded from this website or seen on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Each display is given a number and the Trail starts and finishes at The Institute. Everyone who goes on the Duck Trail can vote by giving each display a mark out of ten. The winning display will be the one with the highest number of marks. Last year’s theme was Key Worker Ducks in recognition of all those people who helped us during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our thanks go to Roland Whitehead & Daughter for kindly sponsoring last year’s event and to Ruth and Anna Bretherton for their excellent organisation.
