River Calder filled with 7,000 ducks (the yellow plastic type!)

Hebden Bridge Duck Race.
Hebden Bridge Duck Race.

A JCB bucket load of plastic ducks were tipped into the River Calder.

The annual Easter Bank Holiday spectacle organised by the Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge draws large crowds.

Ducks are sponsored for the “race” from St George’s Bridge to West End Bridge.

Money raised goes to rotary charities.
