Ashton New Year’s Day Soapbox Races 2019

Morning all and very Happy New Year! Ashton’s first New Year’s Day Soapbox Races for 14 years were a major success yesterday! You can already see lots of pictures, many courtesy of Andy Cooke, on the Ashton Under Hill Notice Board facebook group (you will need to join the group) and the Parish Council facebook page. Here are a few for you and we will try and share more soon.

We would also like to say a huge thank you to Alan Tutton and Andy Wilson from Badsey, who generously allowed us to use some of their brand new PA equipment, purchased by the Badsey Parish Council to support their own Karting/Soapbox event and Flower Show. They also came and set up the equipment for us and Andy even became the race commentator, once our commentator, Fran Kirke, went off to do his own kart runs!
