Wheelbarrow Race 02

Twelve brave souls took on the wheelbarrow challenge this year, with a mixture of women, including three blind mice (a three-girl team!) and men.

A grand total of £609 will be paid to ThatBidKid charity, made up of team entrance money, raffle and donations. With some venues giving us the beverages for free and the others giving it us at a discount that helped towards our total.

King George and the Green Dragon (aka Steve and Mark) did the route in the fastest time of 18 minutes and 40 seconds, while Tim and Richard won the prize for the best costume as the Damn Busters.

A fantastic turn-out of people to cheer on the breathless teams everywhere around the village, and it is hoped that the wheelbarrow race can, once again, correspond with the village fete day again next year.
