SCHOOLS, care homes, community groups and businesses across Wyre Forest are again being asked to decorate a duck house during Bewdley Festival.

The Duck House Project has returned for 2020 to give locals the chance to promote their organisation when the creations go on display in Bewdley Jubilee Gardens in October.

In 2018, more than 6,000 people visited the park to view the colourful wooden houses.

Colin Hill, for Bewdley Festival, said: "The Duck House art project embraces everyone in the community including schools, care homes, art groups, service clubs, and businesses in the district.

"A duck house is a great way to promote your business and generate interest in your organisation. The only limit is your imagination!"

He added: "If you don’t want decorate a duck house for yourself, you might like to sponsor one for a youth or community group to promote their interests."

There will be a public vote to determine the best duck house.

To register and request for a duck house to be built, email before the end of July. Each duck house costs £50 to order.
