THERE was plenty of fun for everyone as a duck race was held in a village on Tuesday.

The event, which was postponed earlier in the year, took place on The Brightwell in Byfield.

The event was organised by the village’s cricket club with around 50 people taking part and it raised £250.

The money will go to the cricket club.

Organiser Rob Lowe said: “We were very pleased with how it went and a good day was had by all. Thanks to those who supported us.”
