On Monday this week the True Northerners took a well earned day off, packed a bbq picnic and headed off to sunny Cartmel in the Lake district, for the bbq race day.
Our day began with a quiz on the coach, organised and hosted by our very own Ade Newell, the winners getting a head start with extra money for betting.
The bbq's were quickly assembled, the venison burgers and sticky toffee pudding going down a treat, and once the food was all gone and a few games of football and bouls had been played, we got on to the main event of the day – to see who could make the most money on the races from their starting stake of £5! Most of us lost it all within the first couple of races but we had a few good wins, Jen from Will Shaddock Photography being the overall winner!
It was a brilliant day out in great surroundings. Thank you to the team at Cartmel for arranging such a fabulous event.
A great day all round!
