Brechin Rotary duck race

Brechin Rotary Club are busy dusting down their ducks in preparation for this year’s annual duck race.

It is set to take place at Fern on Sunday May 4.

Rotary president Jim Houston said the club’s duck race was now in its fourth year and provided a ‘quacking’ combination of good fun mixed with a little danger for club members!

He added that this year they were raising money for the Watson Watt appeal and for the Rotary Youth Leadership Aaward scheme. Brechin Rotary Club will send three Brechin High School pupils to a rotary leadership camp.

Mr Houston said that ducks will be on sale at the Hardware store over the next few days in preparation for the race. There will be prizes for all the lucky winners.
