Ashbourne Soap Box Race 2019

Our church entered Ashbourne's first ever Soap Box Race, with our soap box titled "On a Wing and a Prayer". The soap box was driven by Kirsty Durose and accompanied by angels, one of which "flew" behind the soap box down the course.

The soap box design and our theme and fancy dress were the result of great team work by people of all ages from our church.

We raced down the track in 33 seconds and also earned points for the engineering of the soap box and our fancy dress.

It turned out to be a winning performance as we came first in the family race - winning a huge trophy!

Huge thanks to everyone who helped to organise the event, especially Sean Clayton, and to everyone from the church community who supported the team effort.
