An evening at Old Buckenham Races

From our racing correspondent
It was a crisp evening with a full programme of eight races, both on the flat and over the jumps. The crowd was small but enthusiastic, cheering on their favourites in the hope of getting some return on their carefully placed bets.
If you were lucky enough to have picked the winner the return on your £1 stake could be considerable. It could be £2, £5 or £10 back and if you had put your money on the winner of the last race, the Village Hall Accumulator, there was a prize of £25.
Those with no knowledge of horse racing seemed to be as lucky as those who had studied the form book. The well-stocked bar and festive refreshments helped to ensure a most pleasant evening for those who had braved the weather and come along for a special event.
