FINGERS are crossed the local authority and the climate will allow Brackley’s postponed Soap Box Derby to take place on Sunday, September 30.

Originally planned to be one of the Jubilee weekend events on Sunday, June 3, organisers called it off at the last minute, to great disappointment, due to safety concerns as a result of the weather.

Spokesman Stuart Kirkwood said they had now applied to South Northants Council for the September road closure and added: “June 3 just wasn’t a pleasant day all round, fingers crossed September 30 will be an improvement.”

All the original entrants have been confirmed for September but there a still a few places left - visit www.brackleysoapbox.org to enter.
