Have your say

FLOUR and eggs should be at the ready for an annual charity raft race this weekend.

The Ship Inn, in Langstone, hosts the event every year in aid of Hayling RNLI.

Up to 13 groups are expected to take part in the race in home-made rafts which will set off across Chichester Harbour at 11.30am on Saturday.

Once the racers return they will be pelted with eggs and flour by hundreds of people on the quayside.

Participants have until tonight to register.
