Hunstanton Soapbox Derby marked its 70th anniversary in April and saw huge crowds attending the one day event, with spectacular karts including fire engines, Easter egg themed and even Converse shoes.

The Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk were let down at the last minute by a company supplying the forklift to unload the straw bales lining the race track, but luckily our senior site manager at Styleman Court, Craig Baldry, helped save the day. Lovell ended up supplying the forklift for the fun-filled event, allowing the event to get back on track.

Craig commented: “When the council got in contact with us to see if we could help, we were more than happy to get involved so that the event could continue. The Soapbox Derby is a large local event and really brings the community of Hunstanton together, so it was a pleasure to ensure that it ran smoothly and was set up in time.”

The Hunstanton Soapbox Derby is an annual event and is a day full of family-friendly entertainment, a carnival atmosphere and the opportunity to watch kart racing through Hunstanton. We love seeing all the creativity on show!
