A Grand Prix with a difference is taking place in Hernhill, near Faversham next month.
The Three Horseshoes pub in the village is holding its annual Wheelie Bin Race on Saturday, August 8.
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. Past themes have included The Flintstones, Wacky Racers and Scooby Doo.
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, auction and raffle.
Licensee Charlotte Feveyear said: “We have already had lots of people sign up to take part in this year’s race. It is always a really fun event, and a great way to raise money for a fantastic 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 of four, with proceeds to the Pilgrims Hospices.
