Organisers of the third Great Bungay Duck Race are hoping for a record number of entries at this weekend's event.

Local businesses and organisations have already shown their support for the event, with over 60 customised and decorated entries in the business section.

Event devisor Tim Child said: 'It's not just the magnificent level of support, they've shown real creativity, and for what is essentially floating advertising, many are really more like floating art.'

Sunday's event starts at noon on the Bungay side of Falcon Meadow, where there will be food and drink, music and other entertainment on offer.

Around five hundred people are expected to attend and all proceeds will go to supporting Falcon Meadow, which was brought into community ownership three years ago.
