The Granit Stakes

Every year the team at Granit has a summer party. We decided to try something a little different for summer 2008 and so it was that Caroline, our Social Secretary, put her thinking cap on and decided to organise a night at the dogs.

Our local track is in Wimbledon and on August 15th the team popped along for a night of fun, food and a little bit of responsible betting. We also sponsored one of the races, which meant we were allowed to present the winning dog with a cup…


It was a truly enjoyable evening, although more for some than others. At least one member of the team managed not to pick a single winner all evening, while others cleaned up. Such is the nature of the dogs.

We’re already looking forward to the Christmas party, which should be as spectacular as ever.
