Teams are needed to join the fun as part of the summer festival coming to town in June.

Lynne Drewett said: “We’re letting everybody know early to give people time to get teams together and get building.”

Soap boxes must move by the power of pushing only and can be whatever size, materials or style that people want.

“People’s imagination and creativity can go to town,” said Lynne.
