The quacky races were a big hit in Newmillerdam.

This year’s event, organised by Newmillerdam Community and Conservation Association late last month, featured a Gnome Roam Junior Fun Run, which was won by Ben Shackleton and Emilia Winder. They received their prizes from Wakefield Trinity players Danny Kirmond and Matty Ashurst and mascot Daddy Cool.
