Soapbox Derby – Latest

Planning is still going ahead for the planned Soapbox Derby.

Isoap boxnsurance and risk assessments have been sorted…. but need to decide a format for the event. What we really need is a trolley that we can use for some test runs – so if anyone out there has a trolley already to go please get in contact and you can help us devise a route and carry out some test runs.

We reckon the hardest thing for the event will be to find some pram wheels!

That was a great event …..even by FoSP standards! Great weather – great people.

A new location in the park for this years event and we think it worked well – in fact very well according to the people we talked to.

A huge thankyou to the Doncaster Concert Band and the Senior Brass Group for coming to our park. But special thanks to everyone who supported the event….. without you it would never happen.

The event raised £500 for the Doncaster Concert Band – a Doncaster institution that has brought enjoyment to thousands of people.
