The RMBI 2021 Festival Big Week got off to a winning start at Swansea Masonic Hall on Saturday, August 28th where Phil Osborne hosted the RMBI 2021 Festival Big Week Race Night.
Race sponsors were Penrice, Penllergaer, RP St. John Charles, Sincerity, St. Cecilia, Old Gorean’s Lodges, Steve and Jan Lewis and RP St. John Charles Chapter. There were 74 members and their partners present and the event raised over £1,800.
The Jockeys included Sir Paul Williams (Festival Chairman), Gerald Rowbottom (G. Supt.) and winning jockey Jeff Coles on “FESTIVAL RIDER” at odds 3/1 (well he is the Treasurer).
Mrs Delyth Bunyan won the Ladies prize for the Best Hat.
The event was organised by Race Stewards – Phillip Aubrey, Mark Newbold, Peter Williams and Peter Davies. Swansea Masonic Hall supported the event at no cost and the buffet was supplied by Mark Newbold. All present had a really enjoyable night and went home happy, some very happy with their winnings and raffle prizes. A good night was had by all.
