ON the second day of Christmas the Round Table gave to me, hundreds of plastic ducks heading down the Gwaun to sea.

The annual Fishguard and District Round Table duck race took place in Lowertown on Boxing Day drawing crowds of people and raising hundreds of pounds which the Round Table Will pass on to local charities.

Musical entertainment was provided by Goodwick Brass Band before a flock of yellow ducks was released into the river Gwaun.

The winning duck was number 734, belonging to Lauraine Morris who won £100. Second was Sarah Miles' duck, number 916, she won £50. Dawn Morgans' duck, number 333, came third winning her £25.

The duck that came last, winning its owner a meal for two, courtesy of the Freemasons Arms, Dinas, was number 854, bought by Anthony Walters.

"We had a great day at the duck race," said a Round Table spokesman. "We had a blast and hope you did too.

"Thank you to all who came out, everyone that jumped into the water and everyone who helped collect the escapee ducks."
