As November comes around every year, so does one of Australia’s most popular social and racing events, the Melbourne Cup!

It’s an SPHC tradition to celebrate the Melbourne Cup in the clinic, and with style! Check out what the staff got up to:

The clinic was closed for a couple of hours and the staff all enjoyed a lovely morning tea.

Everyone bought a plate to share for the Melbourne Cup morning tea. Peter surprised everyone by bringing in a delicious deli platter instead of his infamous 7 layer dip. But the staff have requested that he amend this for the Christmas party and bring his 7 layer dip then!

The ladies (and Tom!) wore their fascinators to dress the part for the festive morning.

Everyone was happy as long as Tom didn’t win the sweep! And long behold, Sue was the winner of this year’s sweep… Well, technically Sue’s daughter pulled the winning horse in the $5 sweep and Lucy (SPHC’s young Physio aide) won the $2 sweep.

Thanks to all of the staff who were involved in another year of tradition with our Melbourne Cup morning tea and sweep, it was lots of fun!
