ONE WEEK AND COUNTING...
Not long to go now before the fun and games of another Pram Race. That said, you've still plenty of time to get your team together, knock up a prize-winning entry and prepare mentally for the challenge that is 3.5 miles of grueling fancy dress mayhem.
As always, make sure that your pram is fit to make it round the course in one piece and that it or your costumes aren't going to offend anyone. Don't forget to have a good breakfast and take it easy if you're drinking.

What it's all about
The whole purpose of the Pram Race is to raise money for charity (Charity Registration Number 1145317) and the Committee is delighted to have been able to distribute over £8,000 to a wide range of local good causes in 2013. We're hoping to be able to give out a similar amount in 2014 but the costs of running the event are going up.
A full list of those who have benefited from donations in 2013 is listed on a separate page of the website. For those wishing to be considered for grant of funds from the recent event, please make sure that you apply to the Treasurer early in 2014 - details on the 'About Us' page.
Think you can contribute?
The Pram Race doesn't run itself, well not quite! As you'd expect after all this time we've got the organisation pretty much sorted. However, we are always making small changes to make the race run more safely, smoothly and with the minimum of disruption to the Village.
If you think you could contribute time, energy or ideas then the Committee would be very pleased to hear from you. We are always looking for local people willing to contribute to making the race a continued success.
