To celebrate the race on Tuesday 1st November we're inviting you to our garden party..... we'll bring the turf, you bring the fancy hats!

It's that time of year again when our bosses let us clock off early, we all get dressed up and we all get together to watch some horses run around a track. The lucky ones amongst us will win some big dollars, some of us won't, but we'll all enjoy a few glasses of sparkling and have a great time!
