Duck racing on the River Uck

River Uck sees ducks race, thanks to Uckfield Rugby Club

Duck on the Uck returned this lunchtime (May 1) where the river passes Uckfield Rugby Club.

The race, once a feature of the Uckfield calendar has been revived by the club and was a fun prelude to the Uckfield 7s pub tournament.

Ducks flowed downstream in a close-fought race for the 2016 championship.
