Car club gears up for event

A club for remote control car enthusiasts is to hold an open day at its new site near Kettering.

The Northants RC group is made up of local people who drive and build model cars.

They have recently been given a new patch of land to use off the A43 near to the Sundew Harvester pub.

On Sunday they will hold their first open day at their new headquarters.

It will take place from 10.30am and will include a barbecue and various competitions with prizes up for grabs, including a longest jump contest.

All funds raised will go to improving the land.
