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 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 picking their top three. The winning display will be the one with the highest number of marks.The theme in 2022 was ‘Ducks of the Commonwealth’. Congratulations to Annette and Steve from Ribby Road who lifted the coveted trophy with their ingenious display (pictured above).Our thanks go to Roland Whitehead & Daughter for kindly sponsoring the event and to Ruth and Anna Bretherton (and their Dad!) for the excellent organisation.
Full details on how to enter the 2023 Duck Trail can be found in the Spring Leaflet. This year’s theme is ‘Ducks on Tv’. Last date for entries is 31st August, which gives the girls time to make sure you are on the Trail Map, which will be available to download from our Facebook Page on Saturday 2nd September.Hard copies will be available from the marquee while the Show is taking place.
