RACE NIGHT: A busy night at Sutton Village Hall on Friday 12th January when a group in excess of sixty people got together for a night at the races. Doors opened at 7:00pm for a 7:30pm start allowing for the first drink of the evening before the opening of the tote betting.

Betting fever then took over with large amounts of money being placed on various nags. Soon they were off amidst a lot of cheering and shouting of support for the selections made. First of eight races over, punters were soon back to the tote with their next choice, some paying the stake with their winnings others digging deep and hoping to recoup their losses on the next race. Eight races in all on the cards held the crowds interest on the night, in between trips to the bar.

A commentary on each race, plus a few quips /stories thrown in, made the evening light hearted, greatly enjoyed by those in attendance. There were winners and losers on the night, most people going home happy after a good night out, a few drinks and a pie and pea supper much appreciated.

Thanks must go to organisers Chris and Jane Sulley and their team for promoting the evening and bringing yet another successful event to the rural communities.

VINTAGE TEAS: The Vintage Teas went ahead as planned on Saturday 13th January at the Village Hall.
