The Beccles Duck Race, in its sixth year, takes place next Sunday at Beccles Quay.
The organisers have displayed photos of some of the ducks in training at the race website at www.becclesduckrace.org, and if you have any shots of your decorated ducks in training you are invited to send them to the web designer to be placed on the web site.
The race day takes place from 11am-5pm, with the race starting around 2.30pm.

As well as the race there will be activities including donkey rides, bouncy castles, live bands, a barbecue held by Beccles Lions, a bar, and displays.
Last year's ducks, large and small, will need a new neck tag to join this year's race. The Duck Race team will be at Tesco in the run up to the event for people to get their last minute ducks or re-launch tags. You can also drop your ducks off with the team ready for the race.
