Crewkerne’s popular annual Pram Race will celebrate its Diamond Jubilee this year. The 60th anniversary of the Boxing Day event, now organised by Crewkerne Lions Club, takes place on Thursday December 26th at approximately 11 am. Always fun to watch from the safety of the pavements, teams wearing fancy dress push their vehicles up and down Market Street, competing for the coveted trophies. Vehicles often lose a wheel or experience other setbacks during the race, adding to the thrill and suspense and keeping spectators guessing on whose team will be first over the finishing line.
Teams from local businesses, community organisations, sports groups and groups of friends looking to enter the Pram Race can register their entry with the Lions Club on the day, outside of the town hall. Crewkerne Lions would very much appreciate help with marshalling the event. Anyone who is interested in volunteering, email firstname.lastname@example.org so that names can be included in the risk assessment paperwork, well in advance of race day.
