Despite the bitterly cold and blustery wind, many people did go down to King Georges Field on Sunday to support the Duck Race to raise funds for this year’s Pershore Carnival.  The Ducks were unfortunately not very cooperative but that only added to the entertainment.  There were 3 races with the following results:


Race 1: 1st 158. 2nd 126, 3rd 167

Race 2: 1st 281, 2nd 263, 3rd 207

Race 3: 1st 467, 2nd 554, 3rd 505


All but 2 prizes have already been collected and all winners have been contacted.


Colin Shepherd said: “We rely on our fundraising efforts and donations to be able to make Carnival happen so I would like to thank everyone who came along.  Despite the cold, everyone had a great time.”

The Carnival Royalty for 2019 were also crowned at the event by the Mayor Cllr Chris Parsons and his wife, Jan.  The Carnival King is Sam Mardle, aged 10 of Holy Redeemer School who was also King last year and the Carnival Queen is Bella Bromilow, aged 8 of Cherry Orchard School.
