Billy Cart Derby

Gresford, Easter Saturday

Organisers have waved the chequered flag over the Gresford Billy Cart Derby, cancelling the event for 2020. The annual event held on Easter Saturday attracts thousands of people."We are obviously devastated not to be holding our 21st anniversary event, and want to thank all our sponsors, volunteers for their commitment to date," said Penny Evans. "We are also thinking of all our small community groups and charities that are supported through this event. We hope this period of uncertainty passes quickly and encourage everyone when it does to continue visiting the country festivals and small communities of our region when you can, as every bit of support counts."
