Duck in disguise hands out race trophies
11:40am Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
THE duck race in Donyatt had an added sense of fun this year with South Somerset district councillor Linda Vijeh dressing up for the occasion.
Linda wore a bright yellow duck costume, complete with an orange beak, to hand out cash prizes to the owners of the winning ducks.
Linda said: “I like to try to participate as much as I can, but I hadn’t realised until I had the wretched thing on just how claustrophobic it could be, so I don’t think I’ll be dressing up again!”
After two hotly contested heats Linda awarded Anne Hine £75 and runner up Sue Howells £50.
Parish councillor Bill Porritt organised all the activities and the proceeds from the day went to the village hall.
