And it’s a win for Deb-Arkle at Sandown Park!

Councillor Bennison presents the trophyTraining RunFollowing literally minutes of training in the garden, under the expert eye of the now proven pantomime horse trainer Margaret, Deb-Arkle was ready for her maiden outing in the Mayor’s Annual Pantomime Horse Race on 8th August in front of cheering crowds at Sandown Park.

Our entry of Paula and her daughter Ellie stayed the course and left the other horses eating their dust as they stormed to an impressive victory!

They were awarded a trophy and champagne by the Mayor, Councillor Bennison, and commemorative medals by Michael Aspel.

Many thanks to everyone who helped to collect money at the end of the evening. We raised £830 for the Mayor’s Charity Appeal to be shared between us and Horsley and Bookham Group.

Thank you to the Surrey Advertiser for allowing us to use some of their fabulous photographs.
