Get Set for a Seriously Wacky Race

Posted: 10 July 2014

A Grand Prix with a difference is taking place in Hernhill, near Faversham, this weekend.

The Three Horseshoes pub in the village is holding its annual Wheelie Bin Race on Saturday, July 12.

Launched at the Shepherd Neame pub more than a decade ago, the event sees teams of four racing elaborately decorated bins through the village, to raise money for charity.  Prizes will be given to the team who make it back to the pub in the fastest time, and for the best designed bins.

The race will be followed by an afternoon and evening of events at the Three Horseshoes, including live music from the Leigh Highwood Band, a barbecue, raffle and charity auction.  Pub manager Charlotte Feveyear said: “It is a unique event, which is always a lot of fun for everyone involved, while raising money for a great cause.”


The race is taking place from 1pm to 2.30pm. Entrants must be aged 18 or over, and admission is priced £20 per team, with proceeds to the Pilgrims Hospices.
