Tar Barrel Challenge Weekend Looms
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

August 4, 2016:

Things are hotting up for this weekend's Tar Barrel Challenge. The weather seems set to be kind and as well as the Tar Barrel Racing, the programme of entertainment promises to make the event one to remember. The Tar Barrel Challenge FACEBOOK page has more details than I can include here so make that your starting point for information. Children's Racing starts at 2pm; Adults (that's men, ladies, and YFC teams) start at 4pm, with medals and money prizes on offer. Race in Fancy Dress if you wish - there's another prize for that class too. ROAD CLOSURES will be in place for part of Bridge Street (from the Co-op up the the Square), and The Square itself from about 1pm. Please remove your cars from those areas to make things easy for the teams and spectators. There's music from 2.30pm through to midnight. Enjoy!
