Plastic ducks fill the Thames at Royal Windsor Midsummer Fair and Duck Race

A sea of yellow plastic ducks sailed majestically up the Thames as part of the Royal Windsor Midsummer Fair and Duck Race.

Hannah Cutter receives her prize from Rotary Club of Windsor and Eton president Geoffrey Kidd with Donald and Daisy Duck.

 

The Rotary Club of Windsor and Eton event, which took place at Alexandra Gardens on Saturday was attended by special guest and panto star Kevin Cruise.

First prize in the duck race was won by Rebecca Cutter, 35, of Eton Wick, who received £500 after her sixth time of taking part over the years.

Rotary Club member David Shaw said: "Despite the poor weather we did get a break in the weather when the Duck race started, and with the added benefit of Kevin Cruise as co-host, we did see another great race."

The event was organised in association with the Windsor and Eton Town Partnership and King Edward Court.

There were also bands, Morris dancing, tea, cakes and sandwiches provided by Clewer scouts and guides, a beer tent, coconut shy, cork shooting gallery, children's roundabout and bouncy castle.
