NITWHIT Soapbox Derby  Go-Kart Race 

Niton and Whitwell Parish Council regrets to announce the postponement of the 2nd Annual NitWhit Soapbox Derby, which was due to be held on Sunday 13th September.


The Parish Council, working closely with SWAY, has done everything possible to hold a Covid-19 secure event and shares the disappointment of all concerned.


Given the impending Government restrictions to prevent the spread of coronavirus, this decision was inevitable.


We would commend to you the statement to Parliament made on 10th September by Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock, speaking about new social distancing rules to prevent the spread of coronavirus: click here.
