Australian Racing Enthusiasts Visit Hexham Racecourse

A map of Australia showing the position of Illawong"I just wanted to say a big thank you from our group. We really appreciated the hospitality and personal attention that you afforded us at the meeting yesterday.

We all had a fabulous day and thoroughly enjoyed our evening of racing at your picture perfect racecourse.

Id also like to say that the food was great in the Pavilion Restaurant and the staff there were very efficient and very genuinely friendly. All were excellent but a special mention must go to the lovely dark haired lady that looked after our table, I think my wife was about to sneak her into our group and give me the flick.

We will certainly put out the good word when we get home. If ever you need a recommendation, please just ask. Thank you again Lauren for looking after us all the way from the booking to the event, you were sensational."

Kind regards Ken Pitt and the Aussie rabble.

Emma Newton Fund - Helping Local Charity

"Thank you so much for your kind contribution of Two Club Entries, to be entered into a raffle at the Splitz Fit and Fashionable show on Friday 11th May in aid of the Emma Newton Fund.

It can be quite a difficult task to approach companies to ask for donations but you were exceptionally helpful and your generous voucher is greatly appreciated."

70th Birthday

Thank you to everyone at Hexham Racecourse for a most wonderful evening at the races for what was my 70th Birthday choice on your reciprocal date with Cartmel.

From the moment my wife and I arrived we were made most welcome by the gateman, restaurant manager, chef and the wonderful staff of the Pavilion Restaurant.

A small photo of the Pavilion restaurant and a view of the course The food in the Pavilion was superb with tremendous views over the racecourse - and the racecourse what a gem! It was so nice of you to mention my birthday and Cartmel in the race card - what wonderful customer care.

A day to remember in a beautiful part of the country. We will most definitely be back.
