I’m pleased to offer my support.” 

This Bank Holiday weekend sees the return of the annual Wetherby Lions Beer Festival in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The Duck Race, sponsored by the Lions in support of local charities, is set to draw a big crowd to The Ings on what will hopefully be a sunny Sunday for the fun event commencing at 11.00 am, it sees 1,500 plastic ducks set downstream in a race for the line and cash prizes...
