PUBLISHED: 10:00 22 June 2017
A duck race, a fete and a sandcastle building competition will be keeping families entertained in Uphill this weekend.
Uphill Village Society is putting on a host of activities, which are scheduled to start with the annual school and village fete on Saturday.
The fete will be held in the grounds of Uphill Primary School, in Old Church Road, from noon until 4pm.
There will be face-painting, bouncy castles, and a range of arena displays including birds of prey, vintage cars, buses and emergency vehicles.
Families will also be able to enjoy some games, browse the stalls and tuck into refreshments including barbecued food.
On Sunday, hundreds of plastic birds will be released onto the water from Old Church Road Bridge at 11am in the annual duck race.
Villagers will then head down to Uphill beach for 12.30pm for what has become a popular and competitive part of the weekend’s fun: a sandcastle-building contest.
People can take along a picnic or barbecue to enjoy while taking part in the competition.
