It will be hosted for the fourth year by the 1st Mundesley Air Scouts, and held at Mundesley High Street and Gold Park.

A varied range of carts is again expected and there will be child, adult and parent and child races.

Anna Hollis, assistant group scout leader. said: “It runs from 11am to 3pm and racing starts from 12pm.

“There will be a barbecue, refreshments, bar, stalls including tombola and a DIY craft tent. Everyone is welcome and all money raised goes to the scout group to provide activities for beavers, cubs and scouts and Mundesley Jaguar Explorers.”

Last year 28 crazy contraptions raced through Mundesley village centre in the derby, which was reintroduced by the scouts in 2014 after a 10-year break.
