When on the ground the team of regional managers regularly attend the farm, conducting appraisals and contract reviews.

Race night report…. The first cricket club race night was held at The Hinds Head on Friday 30th January and was a resounding success. Over 50 people braved the weather to cheer on their horse/donkey! The Hinds Head put on some lovely food for punters to enjoy which went down well.
A total of 6 races were run, including the auction race which itself raised £119. Race winners included Alan Eardley, Dan Lovatt, Alex Price, Stephen Bedson, Share Club and Mike Bircher.
Punters enjoyed a good flutter with the first race turning out a 10-1 winner for those lucky ticket holders. The night couldn’t have been such a success without the generous contributions from our supportors:-
Tern Vets LKL Services Frisby and Co Solicitors Rob Bromley (builders) Phillip Smith Roly Tavernor AR Richards
A total of £766 was raised which will go along way to funding a new sight screen which is desperately needed.
Many thanks to all who bought a horse, sponsored a race or had a flutter.
