Hereford Racecourse talks continue
TALKS on the future of Hereford Racecourse have continued in the past week with the local authority agreeing to explore the option of a longer-term lease.
The Arena Racing Company (ARC) , which holds the lease, says it will continue working with owners Herefordshire Council into the New Year in a bid to secure a future for the historic venue which is set to hold its final race in December.
Tony Kelly , managing director of ARC, said: “We will work with the council throughout the remainder of 2012 and into next year to explore whether this longer lease is a viable option for the racecourse.”
Council leader, Councillor John Jarvis, said he was pleased talks would continue, adding the authority remains committed to racing in the city.
- An idea to turn the racecourse into an all-round sport and music venue was floated earlier this month.
