We are very keen to make this landmark event a special one and encourage pram race teams of three to enter online via our ticketing site.
QHOF are proud to announce that we will be celebrating our 40th New Years Day Charity Pram race on 1st January 2020.
This year we are raising much needed funds for Hypo Hounds, a local charity who help children and adults with Type 1 Diabetes whose pet dogs have the potential to become a diabetic alert dog (www.hypohounds.co.uk)
There are prize for both the winning and the best dressed teams – much coveted trophies are also up for grabs!
The event consists of two races, one for the Vets and the Main Race and this year we will be organising a Doggie Parade before the racing kicks off. For a small donation (payable on the day) you and your dog can be part of the fun with prizes for the best dressed dogs! Please arrive early if you wish to join in.
As in previous years, celebrate the first day of the New Year with our ever popular QHOF BBQ with 100% of the profit going to charity.
Please come along and support this deserving cause, the Pram Race is the busiest day in the village’s calendar and we would love to see you there.

The QHOF Sutton Valence Pram Race has been held on New Year’s Day for more than quarter of a century and has raised significant amounts of money for both local and national causes.
Spectators come from throughout the surrounding countryside and the race is regularly featured in the local media.
Two races are run. A Veterans’ Race, for competitors over the age of 45 and a Main Race.
The three-contestant teams dress is a variety of bizarre costumes of their own creation. Two members of the team push the third member (always named thee ‘baby’) around the course in a themed ‘pram’ or go-cart, stopping to drink a beaker of beer at each of the three public houses that line the route.
Revised rules and regulations for participants are shown below.
If you wish to participate, you must fill in the 2018 Pram Race Entry Form
The members of QHOF have been very busy recently reading the village for the festive season.
Last weekend our white Christmas lights were erected around Lambe’s Gardens and this year extend up to the top of the High Street, giving the village a much needed dose of Christmas Cheer.
In keeping with tradition, QHOF members sourced and located a beautiful tree which stands proudly on the village green festooned with hundreds of twinkling lights and topped with a star (or is that a snowflake?)
Special thanks go to Kingswood Christmas Trees for donating such a handsome specimen!
Carols on the Green will be sung on Friday 15th December at 18:30
Christmas Lights outside The Queens Head
