And They're Off...A day at the races.

We were blessed with a wonderful spring day for our afternoon at the races.  This was organised months ago following a Residents' Meeting. 

We arrived just in time to see the Dunston Harriers Hunt parade with their horses and hounds in their scarlet finery.

Donna and clerk to the course David Hunter had arranged a great spot with plenty of space for the bus and a picnic.

There was no big winners or losers although Lin seems to have a knack, or is it luck? George managed to come home 13p richer.

Renee had a good day as her daughter, granddaughter and great grandaughter were there. Barbara's niece Viv is the Racecourse Company Secretary and found time to come and say hello.

Karen Clark, who will be coming every week to do Massage came to meet us all and help.

A very big thank you to all the helpers who came and helped make  it a very special day.
