Mindless Damage to Giant Duck

Damaged Model Duck

We are saddened to learn that the giant Aylesbury duck that stood by the pond at Banks Parade has been attacked and left damaged.

The duck was constructed by Ken Perry on behalf of Haddenham Museum, as part of the Haddenham Feast Festival. It appears that the damage was caused by the model being kicked and punched.

Such a shame that we have mindless individuals among our community with nothing better to do.

Ken Perry expressed his disappointment after the effort he put into its construction but can only hope the vandals who attacked and damaged the duck got as much pleasure as he did in building it.

The duck has now been removed.
