This Saturday the Friends of Millhouses Park will be back with our fabulous free duck races at the fishpass in the park.
The ducks will race on the hour every hour from 11 til 4 – choose your duck early to avoid disappointment!
Should the weather scupper the event we will postpone til Sunday or Monday and keep you updated on Facebook and our website
A big thanks to everyone who donated generously at the MacMillan Duck Race. A great days racing in the park and MacMillan have contacted us to tell us know that the days races had raised over £120.
A very big thanks to all who helped make yesterdays Duck Race successful, I hope you will see from the attached pictures the magic of our little Fish Pass Stream continues to captivate, involve, entertain and bring a smile to a very many faces and add that little something extra to a day out in Millhouses Park.
Donations for the day were £84 which are going towards the Central Climbing/Balancing/sliding block that is to be restored for another 10 years popular use.
We will be running again over August Bank Holiday with the permission of the British Weather.

Another fantastic duck race at Cliffhanger 2011! Check out these amazing pictures which catch the atmosphere of the races brilliantly!
The second year Executive Member Christine Gunby has organised and run the Cliffhanger Free Duck Race. So much simple fun for some 2000 people – double the numbers of last year. After the races all the ducks have to be washed, disinfected and dried ready for next year; a process that can takes weeks after the event. It took 20 members of the friends to keep everything running and all of us were totally shattered by Sunday evening!
The friends took the postcodes of the entrants in the Duck Race – click the link below to see the results! Millhouses Park truly is a destination park!
