The staff at Building Consents recently took a break from their busy schedule and headed to the Chester Races for a day of fun and excitement. The outing was arranged as a way to reward the hardworking staff for their dedication and commitment to their work.
The team arrived at the racecourse early and couldn't wait for the action to start. Armed with their racing knowledge and tips, the staff eagerly placed their bets on the horses they thought had the best chance of winning. And as the races got underway, the excitement levels rose as the horses thundered down the track.
