I was recalling memories of the Cranbrook Pram Race with my father and a friend recently, but can find no trace of it on the web. We were trying to recall the rules, the pubs visited and find any photos. I reckon it stopped in the late 70's or early 80's (?) as the number of pubs in the town started to decline. It was sad to see on a recent visit how many of my old haunts and points of reference have disappeared over time.
I remember the rules as:
At each pub, a half for the pusher and a pint for the 'baby', the pair swapping roles halfway round.
Pram had to be pushed (pusher could not jump aboard going downhill)
All else was fair game....!!
Pubs - 13?(in no particular order)
The One at Harltey Pound.....(good start!)
The White Horse
The Prince of Wales?
The one at Willesley Pound?
Please someone put us out of our misery.....!!
