Kenilworth Lions’ ever-popular annual duck race is set to return this Boxing Day in Abbey Fields.

Punters can back a rubber duck by buying a numbered ticket for £1, with prizes of £100, £75, £50 and £25 for the winners.

The ducks will be launched into Finham Brook at the ford by the mayor at noon. Tickets are available directly from the Lions or from Waitrose on December 19 and 20.

Tickets will also be available at the Thursday market and from selected pubs and shops in the town.
