Fancy a flutter? Wednesday 6 March 2013

Bucking bronco


Why not come along to an evening of "horse racing" at the Cardiff High School Old Boys club house on Forest Farm Road, Velindre Road, Whitchurch, Cardiff CF14 7JH on Friday 15th March (a week this Friday)?

 

The evening has been organised by club secretary Ann Cooper and her husband Tony and we are already assured of a good attendance; but we would like even more.

 

All monies raised will be put towards the club's running costs. Did you realise that teams travelling alone cost over £14,000 last year?
