You can always tell when spring’s really arriving in Todmorden.

You’ll see Todmorden Lions members out and about selling the distinctive yellow plastic ducks for their annual race on the River Calder through the town!

This year the duck race takes place on Sunday, April 28, with a 2pm start at the bridge on Stansfield Road near Central Garage.

Watch for more details about the race over the next two weeks!
