‘Quite barking mad’, that is how the Pagham Pram Race’s vice-president Tim Holland described this year’s Boxing Day event.

Fittingly it was an Alice in Wonderland team that claimed the top fancy dress prize.

The 70th anniversary race saw some 185 people take part, in teams inspired by everything from Donald Trump to dinosaurs.

Tim Peake also got a look in with two entries adopting the local astronaut as their theme.

Clair Riley, manager of the Pagham beach Club, got in touch as it was the third consecutive year the club had entered.

She was ‘delighted’ that the group came home with the prize in the novelty section of the race, thanks to a Ghostbusters theme.
