Today saw the annual Packington Horticultural show, culminating in the auction of produce from village gardeners. The produce was entered in the morning in both junior and adult categories, judged and then the amazing plants, vegetables, cakes and chutneys auctioned off in support of the society. A very successful village event held in the Memorial Hall.
It’s that time of year again, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, or are they ducks quacking? The annual spectacular that is the Packington Duck Race returns once again this bank holiday Monday, 27th August, at 6pm. Tickets are available from members of the village hall committee, £1 buys you one entry to one of the three races – no need to bring your own duck!
Or why not enter the customised duck race? Bring along your own creation and race it down Gilawiskaw Brook to see if you can beat the others to the end!
As well as the races there will also be a barbecue (weather permitting) offering hot food and soft drinks, so lets hope the stunning weather we’re enjoying holds out!
