Great Crowds, Good Fun and Lazy Ducks

Every year large crowds gather to witness the ducks being thrown into the River Yeo in the heart of Cheddar Gorge to see which one will get to the finish line first. 

Thank you to everyone that bought tickets to our previous duck races and helped to support the Children's Hospice SW. There are always great crowds gathered in the gorge to witness the action.
