THE annual Tickhill duck race organised by the Parent Teachers’ Association raised more than £1,000 for the new children’s garden at St Mary’s Primary School.

Hundreds of yellow plastic ducks made their way downstream from the Mill Dam to the finishing line on Water Lane - where the first three past the winning post collected prizes of £150, £100 and £50 funded by local businesses.

PTA chair Paula Mickley said: “The race was very well attended and everyone enjoyed the afternoon. It began to rain near the end but it didn’t trouble the ducks.”
