SHIPTONTHORPE village hall committee is organising another of its popular Race Nights next month.

The event will take place in Shiptonthorpe village hall on 16 March and features real betting with cash prizes and a pie and pea supper courtesy of A Laverack and Son and Langlands.

Chair of the village hall committee Hilary Hazell said; “It’s always a great night and tickets sell out very quickly. The audience are the jockeys and this makes for a very interactive and hugely entertaining evening. There is no bar but people are welcome to bring their own drinks and we provide glasses, corkscrews and bottle openers. Not only is it good fun, but it’s a valuable fundraiser.”

The villagers are raising funds for an extension to the kitchen at the hall and are also appealing to local businesses to sponsor a race at a cost of £30.

Tickets to the Race Night cost £5 and are available from Janet Miller on 01430 872276 and James Ducker on 07710 313025.
