Purpose:

An approach was made by our local MP and Chair of the All Parliamentary Group for Racing, Conor McGinn, who asked if we could provide space for a testing centre. As a result, we have been working with DCMS, Deloitte, G4S, Boots and the military to provide a Covid-19 testing centre for the local community since mid-April. To-date, it’s been a big success and we’ve managed to put on 17 racedays whilst also providing this facility to the local community.
