Being Green Like Our Turf

It's Part of Everything We Do

In line with our mission to act for the long-term good of British racing, acting sustainably helps to protect the environment in which we operate and allows us to reinvest the savings made back in to the sport through prize money and improving customer facilities.

Each racecourse has a “Green Champion” who works with the Group’s sustainability manager to ensure that we implement steps to reduce our impact on the environment without affecting the quality of the customer experience.

The sustainability strategy is constantly evolving and we have a mixture of short and longer term objectives to help achieve our aims.

Newmarket - Christmas party

Everyone commented that they had a brilliant time – ‘Best staff party ever’ was a comment frequently used!

Thank you so much for all your help organising it. Food, entertainment and bar services were great. We are hoping to book again for 2018!

Amy Onyskiw, Practice Manager

Exeter - Meeting

Thank you for with all your help with the day, which made it run very smoothly throughout the day. All the delegates looked very happy throughout the day and it was great to have the little phone to give you a ring when needed.

Thank you again for providing such a professionally run venue, with everything thought of in advance which helps me so much. We are having a debrief next week and will get back to you with a date for next year!!

Kathryn Deakin, Education Administrator Co-ordinator, Devon CEPN

Newmarket - Christmas party

Me, my family and friends absolutely loved the White Christmas party of 2017, so much we are returning this year! The organisation from the events team was perfect, very considerate with times for pre-orders and monies. The food was great, the drinks kept flowing and we danced the night away. Even if we couldn’t walk the next morning because of our heels!

It was fabulous and such a great night, the decor looked fantastic! We are looking forward Alpine 2018!

Gemma Page, Private Individual

Newmarket - Christmas party

It’s the third year we have been to the racecourse for our Christmas Party and we are always impressed by how efficiently the evening is run. Staff were friendly and helpful and we all had a great time!

Corinne Sadler, Director
