AFTER a four year absence the Ottery St Mary A.F.C Duck Race will make a welcome return on tomorrow.

The event at The Millennium Green will see a thousand rubber ducks tipped into the River Otter with the first past the post nabbing £150 for its lucky owner.

Monty Perry has organised the event by popular demand. He said: "I'm hopeful the weather forecast will be better but we're obviously going to have enough water to take them down. Here's hoping it clears up a bit over the weekend."

The fun will begin at around 3pm. Tickets are still available and can be bought through contacting Mr Perry on (01404) 814007.

A car boot sale will also take place on the Millennium Green from 10.30am.
