Hats off to bonnet winners as families go for a duck in Aldbourne
Families went out for a duck this Easter in the local village where the human residents are named after the Little Grebe.
Dozens of 'dabchicks' – an historic nickname bestowed on the inhabitants by the residents of neighbouring Ramsbury – turned out for the Aldbourne duck race, to cheer as rubber ducks bobbed along the Winterbourne.
Elsewhere, the Easter bunny helped children hunt for eggs and judged the Easter bonnet competition. The under fives category was won by three-year-old Ervin Ura, who was balancing a hat almost as tall as he was, while out-of-towner Oscar Greig (5) – on a visit to his grandmother's – came up from Wichester to clinch the crown in the over-fives category.
All proceeds from the event, which was held on Easter Saturday, will go towards supporting the Memorial Hall.
