Photos from Forbes' Melbourne Cup lunch

A group of local ladies had prime position to watch the Melbourne Cup, marking the occasion with a very pink high tea at Forbes Services Memorial Club.

The event raised funds for Forbes Breast Cancer Support Group, with Yvonne Shaw and Denise Jelbart there to provide information.

Ladies enjoyed a fashion parade by Little Extras and some yarns spun by John “Tractor” Rennick before watching the race on the big screen. 

Just about every venue in town was screening the Cup with lots of locals taking the opportunity to have a long lunch.
