If you fancy a game of golf at Yea, please wait for the running of the last. The last at Yea races that is. The course has holes both inside and around the racetrack. Buggies and three-woods were replaced by bookmakers and silks last Saturday however when the town held their pre-Christmas picnic meeting.
The crowd estimated at around 1,200 mingled between the bars and marquees on the front lawn. On a hot day the cold beer became a punter’s best friend. Groups had set up camps along the lawn, cracking champagne and tearing at chicken. The Mr. Whippy ice-cream van was keeping children busy with fast melting delights while the more dapper in the crowd dined along the balcony of the club overlooking the lawn.
