The annual event took place at Riverside Walk and Storrington’s Mill Pond on Sunday, April 29, 2007 and had great prizes including the top prize of £100.

Visitors enjoyed a variety of stalls, homemade cakes, a barbecue, refreshments, a bouncy castle, fairground rides and a car boot sale.

The event was organised by Friends of Storrington School (FOSS), who were keen to involve the local community and village businesses in the duck race, which is a major fundraiser for the school.
