And they’re off! Grand National excitement at Birch Green

The most anticipated horse racing event of the year, the Grand National, took place recently, and Birch Green residents couldn’t wait to get involved in the fun.

All residents chose a horse from our sweepstake, before we settled down to watch the race, which took place at the famous Aintree Racecourse, not too far away from Birch Green.

Lucky Lilly Fry picked the winner, Rule the World, and received a tasty box of chocolates as her prize. Nell just missed out on the top spot and came second with her horse The Last Samuri, taking a box of Maltesers as consolation.
