Delicious gin and tonic cake, anyone?
It was the end of an era for me last Friday at Stratford Racecourse and I enjoyed every minute of a long but happy day. The day started with the PPORA awards lunch and the Paddock Pavilion was bursting at the seams as 320 people gathered to listen to guest speaker, Nicky Henderson. He was followed by Luke Harvey – who hosted what […]
When is the AGA man not the AGA man? Answer = never, although I’m not complaining! There was no AGA involvement at Umberleigh and this was a day out to enjoy the end of season party atmosphere, chat (lots), take photos, and yes, enjoy a drink or two. All of that was achieved and we […]

A very busy week in the AGA world meant that my blog from the Vine & Craven has had to be put on hold until Saturday evening. That’s fine with me, although Mrs S has had to settle for The Voice and Casualty while I tap away on the keyboard, as opposed to a trip […]
