THE Three Towns Growers held their annual Duck Race Day last Saturday, July 16 - and once again it proved to be a big success.

And Provost Anthea Dickson was there to launch the big fund-raising event at their allotment site off Elm Park, Ardrossan.

MP Patricia Gibson and MSP Kenneth Gibson were also there, with their chosen ducks at the ready.

In addition to the ever popular duck race event, there were tombolas, bottle stalls, and baking available throughout the day.

And the incredible weather on the day saw a great turnout of locals to enjoy all of the fun.
