Ducks in the News

Greetings All,

For those of you who have not seen a paper in the last 3 days I suggest you have a look at this, it even made “The Telegraph.” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-south-east-wales-28925165 the Fourteen Locks Centre has had comments from as far away as Brazil and Portugal! We might even get a mention in “Waterways World” next month.

A good day was had on Sunday at the Llangynidr Show but the rain put off the spectators for the Duck Race on Monday. Thanks to Rev. John Collier, our Chaplain, and all those who supported us buying tickets, donating prizes and helping out.
