Crewkerne Lions Club are the official organisers of this year’s Pram Race. The annual event which will take place on Boxing Day, Tuesday December 26th, at approximately 11 am from outside of the town hall, is now in its 58th year. Crewkerne’s Pram Race is always a fun event to watch from the safety of the pavements, as teams wearing fancy dress push their wheeled vehicles up and down Market Street, competing for the coveted trophy. Vehicles often lose a wheel or experience other setbacks during the race, adding to the thrill and suspense and keeping the spectators guessing on whose team will be first over the finishing line.
Richard Hall and his staff at Oscars always join in the fun by entering a team and have successfully won the Pram Race on several occasions. This year, Richard is the first point of call for competitors wishing to enter the race and teams are asked to call in to Oscars and register their entries before December 26th. Crewkerne Lions Club are inviting volunteers to help marshal the race and would love to hear from anyone who can spare the time. Please call 01460 72305 to offer your assistance and enable the Lions club to fill out the necessary paper work prior to the annual event.
