Hospitality Refurbishment

Racing returns to Salisbury this Sunday as Betfred “City Bowl” Family Race Day ushers in the new season at the Netherhampton venue.

 
As in previous seasons, the racecourse has embarked on a winter-long refurbishment project, with the focal point being the Bibury Suite’s top-floor of hospitality boxes. The Avon, Cranbourne, Pembroke & Marlborough boxes have undergone a complete revamp for the first time since their construction in the mid 1980’s.
 
A project of this size has required a sizeable investment from the racecourse and it has been all hands on deck since the project got the go-ahead from the Directors in December. The ground staff spent a week gutting the top floor out before the sub-contractors moved in to complete the refurbishment in four months. W.Earl Building Contractors, Oakwoods Shopfitting, SGS Heating & Electrical, Cara Glass, CPA Scaffolding, Carpetwise, Spire Electrics, P.G. Hibdidge & Inside Out Furniture Contractors all combined to work on the project smoothly.
 
The total cost of the upgrade has amounted to the budgeted sum of £250,000, displaying a commitment from Salisbury to ensuring that hospitality facilities will provide a high-quality experience on race days for many seasons to come.  Project Manager, Sylvia Taylor, attests to this: “The refurbishment will provide clients with a more spacious environment and a more open view of the racecourse. Every box is now equipped with chilled units, including wine fridges, and the brand new kitchen provides scope for more varied menus, thus providing a much more comprehensive and high-quality experience.” 
 
In addition, the new boxes allow Salisbury more flexibility in terms of numbers that can be accommodated and so far the uptake has been positive, as Hospitality & Events Executive Alexina Griggs, points out: “The response has been fantastic.  Sales are currently much further ahead of where they were at the same point last season, with half of our fixtures already fully booked.”
