Epping Town Show Races

Those attending the annual Epping Town Show were in for a treat this year. The charity wheelbarrow race had an extra entry... two fresh faced individuals in Ivy Chimneys school uniform strode purposefully towards the start line, proudly displaying their painted barrow, complete with blackboard graffiti.

The entries were organised into 3 heats, with local businesses fielding teams for this fantastic event. Ivy were drawn in heat 3, against some very tough opposition in the shape of firefighters and burly builders!

Sam Roberts took the handles first, with Mr Jones sitting pretty in the barrow. A flying start, excellent swap-over and determined return leg were sadly not enough to finish in the top two and qualify for the finals.

Well done to everyone who came along to support the event, a lot of money was raised for some very deserved local charities.
