Have your say

The third annual Great Glen Maye Duck Festival is on Saturday, May 10, at 1pm, in the National Glen in Glen Maye.

Organisers say there will be ‘duck-related’ events near the lower picnic site. Open races take place at 2.15pm and 3.25pm.

The race entrance fee is £2, which covers both races or £1 if you bring your own duck.

Among the prizes are a return ticket for a car and two adults on the Steam Packet. Plastic racing ducks can be bought at Elaine’s Flowers in Peel, or on the day itself.

There is also going to be a corporate race at 2.45pm where companies can sponsor a duck for £10 for the chance to win a trophy and £100.

All proceeds are for Glen Maye Chapel and Community Centre. Last year money raised helped to repair the roof.
