Fun for all the family

The duck race is held every year at the Pocket Park in Station Road, usually in June.

It is a fun day for all the family with bouncy castles, canoe rides, pond dipping, tractor rides and various charity stalls. Our pocket park is a great asset to the town and is used every day by dog walkers, joggers, fishermen, walkers, parents and children.
