I visited Leicester racecourse on Wednesday 2nd February as a Warwick member and on Thursday 17th February as a Member of the Racegoers Club, on both occasions I was given a badge for Complimentary drinks and biscuits in a marquee.  This is the first time I have experienced this hospitality and have been most impressed by the friendly welcome from all the staff at Leicester racecourse. I would like to say thanks.    Yours sincerely 
John Tustin 

"Good Afternoon Di, currently on the train back from London after a most enjoyable First ever visit to Epsom Racecourse. Also a big thank you for last Wednesday at Cheltenham (which coincided with my Birthday). Have also been to the last couple of Stratford meetings. Your efforts are really appreciated. See you on Saturday at Leicester.    Many Thanks " John Tustin
