The Duck Race and Fete organised by St.Stephen's in aid of its Roof Fund was a great success and raised 1,600.

Several hundred people came to the meadow at Bere Farm, where they enjoyed a wide variety of amusements, the climax being the Duck Race. Nearly a thousand ducks took part,  competing for the first prize of 100. Crowds thronged the route, and many hazards faced them as they raced along the swirling currents, but most finished. The winner was owned by
