Thousands turned up today for Billericay's Rotary Club's third Soapbox Derby event at Sun Corner racing along the London Road with scores of very clever little soapboxes on wheels of every imaginable kind. Each year, this event gets better and it was great to see so many folk entering their teams from schools, local businesses and clubs who had contributed their time and energy in creating some wonderful little vehicles.
We enjoyed seeing some amazing costumes, dancing, lively music (which accompanied the entrants) and the variety was amazing. Here are a few photos of a great Billericay event.
I was lucky to bump into one happy couple, Elizabeth and Philip Grimshaw, who had driven from Manchester especially for the Billericay Soapbox Derby. Hope they visit us again next year!
