Everyone is welcome to join in with the event. Categories this year are 0-4 years, 5-7 years, 8-10 years, 11-15 years, adult men and adult women. Have you decorated your hat yet?

Shortly afterwards, at noon, 500 plastic yellow ducks will race down the Nunney Brook through the centre of the village, with prizes for the winners. Visitors can sponsor ducks, with the money supporting community projects. Ducks are on sale at the SPAR village shop and on the day at £1 each.
