Betting Is A Mugs Game!

What we love about Evesham is that it’s a lot like us, it likes to work with a theme!  Admittedly, we are pretty much strangers to the turf, but this week you can’t miss that it’s The Cheltenham Festival where it’s all novice chases, handicap hurdles and ladies in posh hats akimbo! 
Cheltenham Races 1A lot of the shop windows in town are reflecting the event in their windows displays.
cheltenham Races…… and with the potential of a few extra visitors staying in town, (Cheltenham is only about 17 miles away), several cafes and bars are offering special celebratory breakfasts to line the stomachs of eager race goers or for those who prefer to watch the action from the comfort of the establishments that are screening it live.

Groan! What a pun.
Dusty carpets have never been beaten - or vacuumed either!
