It has been 2 years since my last post on the blog and so much has happened. We have a new General Manager in post, I have been and come back from maternity leave and we now have 23 fixtures in our racing calendar as well as a new mascot called Wot the Duck - who would have thought!!
This week we are getting ready for our second largest race day of the season, this year is themed 80s Night! Although I only just saw in the 80s I still had great fun ordering all the props for our big 80s marquee, and organising the disco which is going be on after racing finishes at 8.45pm. It is looking to be a beautiful day, and cooler than yesterday which I think everyone is grateful for.
Another new date for the diary has to be our new BIG Macmillan Tea Party on Thursday 30th July. We are giving £1.00 from every ticket sold on the day back to Macmillan as well as running a Tea Party & Cake Sale throughout the afternoon. The best bit is that all the staff that work here (including me) are baking the cakes to be sold to the public on the day! I think we may need a 'seconds' table for cakes that were baked but didn't turn out correctly, shall we say! As well as all of this, we have a fantastic singer performing throughout the day and children's entertainment so we are really excited about working with such an amazing charity.
The other key date this summer is going to be our Ladies Day on Friday 14th August! We have fashion shows run by Award Winning Fashion Designer Fazane Malik and great best dressed prizes revealed here first......spa days at Eden Hall, gym memberships for Roko and treatments at The Joshua Tree! Which lucky lady will win these fantastic prizes? Make sure you get shopping for your outfit now!
After all that information being thrown at you, I will leave it there for today but be assured I will be back more regularly now to provide you all with gossip from behind the scenes at Nottingham Racecourse.
