Rubber ducks will adorn Ramsey this weekend as the town prepares for its Duck Race on April 3.
From midday, participants can choose their heat times for the race at the library on the Great Whyte, as well as naming their ducks.
Organised by Ramsey Water Care project, the race hopes to highlight water safety and care, and the town’s fire crew, trained in water rescue, will be at the library with their fire engine on the day.
The race is being held in conjunction with Heritage Sunday; the first Sunday of the year to see Ramsey’s historical sites open including the National Trust Abbey Gatehouse and Lady Chapel.
Other places open will be The Rural Museum, the Mortuary Chapels and Walled Kitchen Gardens, and a vintage bus will leave the library every hour to show visitors around.
