Never one to duck out of the chance to get involved with a community event, our Midlands region is once again supporting the popular Annual Duck Race in Burton Latimer. The Duck Race has been a focal point in the village’s summer calendar for around 20 years, and this year’s event takes place on Sunday June 26.
The location for the family fun day – complete with bouncy castles, canoe rides, pond dipping, tractor rides and various charity stalls – is the Pocket Park, a popular open space in the town, used by dog walkers, joggers, fishermen, walkers, parents and children.
We're helping to support the event by meeting the cost of printing the thousands of leaflets promoting it to audiences across Northamptonshire. Proceeds from the Duck Race and the Fete, which will also boast live music, beer tent and BBQ, will be used to support the Pocket Park and the Burton Latimer Scouts.
Sales manger Tracey Gibson said: “This is such a fantastic community event, so well supported in the village for many years, that it is our privilege to be a part of it once again.”
Duck Race co-ordinator and local town councillor Maureen Jerram said: “Our huge thanks to Linden Homes once again for their generosity in helping with the leaflet for the event, which we know will once again attract many people from the village and further afield.”
Over 90% of our waste is recycled or converted into energy.
Over £133m has been committed by Linden Homes to improving local communities since 2010.
