Braintree: Lawn Mower Racing returns to Blake House
5:00pm Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
You might be content to simply cut the grass on your garden lawn with your lawn mower or trim the borders of your flowerbed but a small band of adrenaline junkies are preparing theirs for something much more exciting - lawn mower racing.
Once again, it is time to get ready to rumble at Blake House Craft Centre as the annual Lawn Mower Racing Championships returns to Braintree.
The Essex heats of the national championships, organised by the British Lawn Mower Racing Association, will be held on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September in the grounds of the centre and will see dozens of lawnmower enthusiasts tear around a track at top speed.
A range of family entertainment will also be running, including water zorbing and archery, as well as a variety of side stalls, a barbecue, the Original Great Maze and minigolf.
Entry: £2 is adults, £1 for children, all proceeds towards the Essex Air Ambulance.
Gates at the Craft Centre, in Blake End, Braintree, open at 10am and races will run between 1pm and 5pm on both days.
