"I just wanted to say what a fantastic day my Partner and all our friends and family had on the 7th February for his surprise 50th party. I had lots of dealings before the event with Jill, Claire, Georgie and lots of other people.They helped me no end and all my emails and calls where dealt with putting me at ease as I was so stressed. They couldnt have been more helpful.

On the day of the event I was so stressed as **** still had no idea what was happening and had to get him there without knowing he had 48 guests waiting for him.When we got there it was lovely to see everyone and he was so surprised.

All day everybody at Chelmsford made sure we all had everything we needed and were so attentive.I couldn't fault anything it was perfect.I have heard everybody wants to go back and so that just goes to show you how great it was.

Thank you so much for all you have done for me for this special day.

See you soon and please pass on my thoughts to all the events team, security team and bar staff who were amazing.

"We had the most amazing day at Chelmsford City yesterday and were totally overwhelmed by the warmth of the welcome received upon our arrival. Having mentioned our quest to visit all racecourses in the country ‘from Aintree to York’ to both yourself **** over the phone, our final 60th visit to Chelmsford City for my husbands 65th birthday was the most memorable occasion. Please pass on our sincere thanks, once again, to **** for taking us into the Weighing room and introducing us to Derek Thompson and for us to present the Winning trophy of the first race as well as choose the “best turned out” horse in the second race......what a marvellous surprise for both of us! To **** for giving us a glass of champagne and watching the race from Winning Connections and to **** Restaurant Manager for giving us a guided tour of the facilities and ensuring we were well looked after in the Fairwood Restaurant with even more champagne!

We really cannot thank you ALL enough for such a wonderful Finale to our racecourse tour and I shall, of course, put pen to paper and send a proper letter of thanks in due course but felt I just had to email whilst I am still on such a high from all yesterday’s excitement!"

"I wasn’t quite sure who to address this note to.....? Having spoken to your colleagues over the phone prior to last Wednesdays meeting, we were greeted upon our arrival at Chelmsford City. You made us feel very special indeed as we celebrated my husbands 65th birthday by visiting the final (60th) racecourse in our quest to visit ALL racecourses in the country from ‘Aintree to York’! This we have now achieved and were thrilled to be asked to make a presentation in the first race and choose the best turned out horse in the second race. We enjoyed a very tasty 3 course lunch in the Fairwood Restaurant and the service was superb. If you could please pass on our thanks. All in all the staff at Chelmsford City made it the most memorable occasion and we do thank everyone for all their hospitality. We look forward to a return visit to this ‘special’ racecourse!"

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the team that looked after me and my Dad yesterday. We had such a lovely day and I have some brilliant memories and stories I can remind him of.

When we arrived I was met by a friendly welcoming team of ladies who gave me my tickets and arranged a golf buggy to the centre. Once we were in the centre my name was on the list and was given access to the Trainers and owners lounge section with my Dad.

He loved it! Every one of the staff was helpful and friendly and my Dad felt relaxed. He even had a winner on the sixth race which was so nice he was so excited and had a massive smile on his face.

After the racing had finished we went back to reception and they arranged for the golf buggy to take us back to the car park.

I am overwhelmed the trouble everyone went to and made this a special memory for myself and Dad.

Thank you again I owe you a very large glass of wine!
