Soap Box Derby Cancelled for 2016

Colin Smith in Soup Can Soap Box

The hill in Avon Dassett is both steep and demanding and the spring in the road just before the church bends has erupted worse than it has done in previous years, so much so that the water is now down to the last corner before the finish straight.

Stratford council have had numerous attempts at solving the problem but it is getting worse and they say it will take a lot of time to repair and cannot give a date before June for them to attempt to repair it, so in the interests of safety there will be no race this year.
