Many thanks to everyone who came along to the recent Beetle Drive and Christmas Bingo. This month Belstone Cricket Club is staging a Race Night for your delectation. Runners and riders will be lining up in the starting stalls in Belstone Village Hall on Friday 24 January with the first race galloping off at 7.30pm. Peter Hammond will be rolling the dice and some mystery guests will be moving the six wooden horses up and (if you are unlucky) back down the board – great family entertainment and much more fun than TV race nights. Tickets cost £5 for everyone over 16 years of age – free for everyone else. There will be a Beer Bar to keep punters sustained during the handicaps, hurdles, flat races and steeplechases, but please also bring your own drinks and nibbles. Please book your tickets in advance from Peter Hammond (01837 840234) or Chris Walpole (01837 840498).
