Krazy Races comes to Northwich
Northwich is going to get a little wackier next year as the town welcomes a brand new event on Sunday 14th June 2020 in the form of a SoapBox Derby.

The event will be held on Castle Hill with an event village and viewing within Verdin Park. The event is the first of its kind to be held in the town and will be free for visitors to watch.

Thousands of spectators are expected
from all over Cheshire and beyond to cheer on the weird, wacky and wonderful SoapBox entrants who can enjoy watching carefully crafted karts being hurtled down a track which will consist of chicanes, obstacles, water features and more.
Now here’s where you could potentially come in…

The event is looking for 40-50 teams to enter the race in a knock out style competition with trophies going to fastest winner, best dressed, most innovative design and more. Teams are encouraged to raise as much money as possible for charity with this year’s Shrewsbury Wacky Races seeing teams raise over £20,000 for a variety of causes.

Applications are set to open any day now so make sure you keep your eyes on the Krazy Races website for the latest information regarding the event.

Do you want to get involved in the Fiver Fest?
This autumn, the Totally Locally initiative is running Fiver Fest, a campaign centred around promoting independent shops and businesses.

It will run from Saturday 5th to Saturday 12th October and encourages businesses to run deals or offers for £5 throughout the week of the initiative to celebrate independent shops and encourage people to visit them.
It has proved to be very successful in numerous towns around the country with the shops taking part reporting additional footfall in their stores which is great for raising awareness of their goods and products.

If you want to take part please email details of any offers that you will be holding to Stephanie Leese on Stephanie.Leese@groundwork.org.uk so that the Northwich BID can promote for you.
