Rt Hon Lord Lilley

    Peter Lilley, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, presented prizes to the winners of the Hitchin ?Soap Box? Derby on Saturday 28th September. Many local parents and Scout, Cub, Beaver and Brownie groups attended the competition, which was held at Whitehill School in Hitchin.

    Peter Lilley said after the event:

    “The day was a tremendous success. 50 carts were entered by Scouts, Beavers, Cubs and Brownies from across the Hitchin district. I awarded prizes to the winners at the end of the race.

    “It was impressive to see how much ingenuity was involved in building carts from everything from perambulators to wheelchairs. We adults had as much as fun as the young people, but my own steering in the adult race left something to be desired!?
