President Ed Harrison announced we'd do it all again. Following a unanimous decision at the club's Business meeting, the Soapbox Derby returned to Billericay in May 2017. A fantastic success for the club - the weight of unsolicited positive comments on Facebook, Twitter and email, and direct approaches by the public, meant we just couldn't let people down. over 5,000 spectators in 2016 - over 8,000 came in 2017?
