Malmesbury Vics ducks flooding fundraiser

TWO little ducks will help Malmesbury Victoria pay for the ravages of last winter’s flooding.
The football club has its ducks in a row ready to start a race along the River Avon at 2.22pm on September 22 from Stainsbridge.
Club secretary Julie Exton said: “The race proceeds will go towards meeting the costs and losses to the club following last November's floods.
“It’s quite ironic that we are using the river which caused us so many problems to try and put things right.”
The club's pitch was flooded repeatedly over the winter and even the clubhouse was inundated on several occasions.
Ducks, costing £1 each can be bought from the Market Cross today and from the clubhouse.
