Creative children and adults alike are invited to decorate a rubber duck for Bungay's third annual duck race.

The race, which will be held on Falcon Meadow next Sunday, July 9, aims to raise funds that will secure the meadow for use by local people.

The Puddleducks competition calls on artists of all ages to customise a duck in a style of their choosing, with prizes given in several categories. However, more entries are still needed.

The duck race's Laura Myatt said: 'Last year's Puddleducks entries were fantastically creative, with everything from trains to monsters to superheroes. The best thing was that whole families got involved in decorating their own duck. We're counting on the great Bungay public to give us even more this year.'

Trophies on the day will be awarded for coveted titles such as 'Best Dressed Duck', 'Duck Most Likely to Succeed', and 'Most Topical Duck'. Ducks will also be entered into a special Puddleducks river race.

Ducks for the event can be bought for £5 each at locations throughout Bungay, including the library, Art Trading Company, Moth Crafts, Bugs Play Café, Beehive Nursery, St Edmund's Primary School, Bungay Primary School and Ellingham Primary School.
