Jun 21st | Greyhound Racing at Romford Stadium

And – they’re OFF! Yes, Capel Ladies had a grand day out at the races! Destination – Romford town first, for a bit of shopping and a coffee, and then off to Romford Stadium to enjoy a three-course meal, followed by an exciting and entertaining afternoon of greyhound racing!

There was mixed success amongst the group! For the most part people broke even by the end of the day, some came away worse off, but the biggest winner of the day was Louise Evans who had obviously taken the whole thing very seriously! A grand day out!
