Grangemouth duck race will aid rose garden

The rose garden in Grangemouth’s Zetland Park stands to gain from a popular novelty race on Saturday next week - and everyone who can manage is urged to join in.

The duck race will see scores of numbered ducks jockeying for position in the bid to clinch this year’s winner’s title - and entrants get three ducks for a fiver.
