first_img Coral relaunches cinematic campaign for racing’s return June 5, 2020 Related Articles Submit Share StumbleUpon ITV secures three-year British racing broadcast deal August 5, 2020 Recent figures published by the Horserace Betting Levy Board (HBLB) have shown that interest in british horseracing has continued to grow, as both total and average attendance for the first half of 2019Figures have indicated that there has been a two per cent rise in attendances, with total attendance reported to be 2,801,512. Average attendance per fixture has also risen to 3,979 compared to last year. David Armstrong, Chief Executive of the Racecourse Association, commented: “I am delighted to see the hard work of racecourses pay off and result in an increase in both the total and average attendance figures, with excellent performances by racecourses of all sizes.“The equine flu outbreak was a difficult period for the sport, but it is hugely reassuring to see that attendances increased despite the national postponement of racing.“Working collaboratively with Great British Racing, our focus on data has allowed us to give bespoke, targeted support to racecourses via our Marketing Services programme. We will continue this programme and look forward to helping racecourses attract more customers to the sport and enhance the experience of those customers whilst they are on site.”It was expected that the outbreak of equine influenza earlier in the year would have a significant impact upon the figures, however the RCA explained that ‘overall attendance figures indicate the durability of the public’s appetite and affection for horseracing.’Larger race events such as The Festival at Cheltenham as well as the Investec Derby Festival at Epsom Downs had played a part in the attendance boost. Rod Street, Chief Executive of Great British Racing, added: “Competition for the leisure pound is getting fiercer and racing is rising to the challenge. Racegoing provides a big opportunity to get people closer to the sport and grow their interest, so these latest figures are encouraging.” UK Racing pushes for drastic levy reforms as deep recession looms August 25, 2020 Sharelast_img read more

Closed meetings just raise eyebrows all over town. Another example of lack of transparency is “why have we not been told where did the almost 1 million dollar we star rebate go and why did it not go back to the customers who overpaid?” These are things that *must* be addressed. And we keep pouring money into “attractions” that aren’t making money.

That was some scary news. Our previous city manager and council really put us in a hole. I also feel there is too much monies being transferred from the utilities to cover the short fall in the general fund.Hopfully the new manager and council will address this in the upcoming budget in August and get us back on track without gouging us too bad. I thought with Jan Korte, who is an accountant, would have something to say, but all the council is quiet as a mouse on this subject and goes along with everything staff recommends.
