Take part in a Duck Race in Buckingham on Easter Monday, April 21, and help boost fundraising towards the Royal Latin School’s £5 million Science Discovery Centre.

A thousand plastic ducks will be released at the weir end of the river in Chandos Park at noon. The first prize is £50, and ducks cost £2 from race sponsors Hampton’s estate agents or the Old Gaol. Pictured second from left is Hamptons manager James Kendling with Hilary Baxter, Dean Jones and Mary Murphy of the Royal Latin School.

A separate miniature boat race for businesses is being held straight afterwards, with a prize of a Perpetual Trophy.
