15th April Raceday

Dear Hanna
Thank you so much for your valuable assistance in arranging our first visit to Ffoslas Racing Course. My soon to be 90yr old mother and the rest of us had a wonderful time in the Hospitality Box.

I was looking at the experience from my mothers’ point of view as a disabled person and feel that I must write and say how wonderful the facilities are there with you. We were able to park in the Disabled Bay at the Entrance Gate, and could enter via the wide entrance alongside the turnstiles. Then a short walk to the main building (easily accessible for someone in a wheelchair). The Main Building had wide corridors, lift to the first floor and disabled toilet facilities.

The hospitality Box was perfect for us, as it was not as noisy as the Bridle Suite, and as my mother’s hearing is poor was much better for her (with very little background noise interfering). We also enjoyed the access to the balcony to see the Paddock.

What I had forgotten to ask you beforehand was the use of a chair with arms, for my mother who has difficulty getting up from her chair. On arrival, I asked if one was available and shortly afterwards a chair with arms was brought for her to use. NB. Many thanks to the gentleman who brought it as it was a heavy chair!!

Even though my mother did not come out to watch the race on the balcony she was in a perfect place to view it all on the indoor TV which was alongside our table.

The food was delicious and staff were great. Your birthday card was also very thoughtful and much appreciated. We did have a number of winnings between us, my mother getting a few, based on the names of the horses!!

All in all it was a perfect day for us and the champagne was lovely.

Once again many thanks for everything you did for us and we hope to come along again later on in the year.
