Slingsby Duck Race 2018

The annual Slingsby Community Primary School’s Duck Race, now in its 27th year, will be held on Saturday 14th July from 11am to 3pm in the Sports Field located adjacent to the village church. The usual family fun such as an inflatable slide, face painting, bouncy castle, hook-a-duck, tombola and raffle with refreshments including a BBQ is available throughout the day. Entry is free.


It is a wonderful day out for families of all ages and is organised by the Friends of Slingsby School (FOSS) to raise money to benefit the children of the school. Ducks can be bought on the day, or prior to the event at various locations including Hovingham Market on Saturday 7th July, or direct from the school. Ducks will be released into Slingsby beck at 2pm and prizes will be awarded to the first three ducks to cross the line and there will be a special prize for the duck that comes last!


Come along and join us on a fun packed day and help raise funds for our local school.
