Martin’s Blog 15th August

A busy but really fun couple of days. Supper with Peter and Jane Boggis at The Fox at Broadwell was delicious – great food and superb company celebrating Mr Mafia’s record breaking win at Market Rasen. Ed Simpson looked after us so well, as usual, a great catch up.

Last night we had about 25 of us here for a Debden Bank celebration of his three wins culminating in the Treble Treble at Southwell. A fabulous group of people and a special night – I cooked a massive paella which amazingly nearly all went (I always cook too much!) and Neil Clifton, who is the BBQ Supremo, cooked a delicious selection of food including a delicious forerib of beef which was out of this world. These amazing times need celebrating and that we did.

Today we are off to celebrate the wedding of Hannah Ashton, one of our physios and a massive part of our team and keeping all our horses in top shape, and Presenter Alex Steedman and we cannot wait. Belinda has got her ‘Cilla Black’ hat on as she introduced them both many years ago and what a fabulous couple they make. It’s another wedding that has been planned, then delayted, then planned again due to covid but it will be worth waiting for and we can’t wait to share their special day.

Happy Birthday to HRH The Princess Royal.
