IT'S TIME TO ACT TO SAVE GREYHOUND RACING AT BELLE VUE.
Right now is the time to act in order to try and save Greyhound Racing at the Belle Vue Greyhound Stadium..
In the last few days the truth has finally come out no more rumours it's a fact a 'FACT' the owners of the stadium Crown Oils have decided to pull the plug and sell our greyhound track to property developers.
So I'm asking you all now to please contact the Mayor of Manchester Andy Burnham and tell him how you feel.
The more people that contact the mayor the better.. ACT NOW BEFORE IT'S TO LATE.
Just the job Jimmy - Thanks. Keep up the good work!
IMO that letters would have much more impact than emails (although both are welcomed), because they would have to be opened and recorded as protests/objections, whereas emails can just be deleted or very easily overlooked and not become part of official record.
Further - I would like to clarify that anyone and everyone can complain to him, no matter where they live, as closing this Stadium will not only, put literally, throw many people out of work, from a job that they have been doing for many many years, it will also deprive people from the whole of the North West the right to watch Greyhound Racing within their area, something that they have been used to by supporting the stadium events over many years.
Belle Vue is not only an institution, it is the sole Greyhound Racing Stadium for many a country mile, as well as being the home for Stock Car Racing, Cycle events, Motor Cycle training venue and other activities which very much go towards our inclusive co-operation with local residents and recently granted considered status as CAV.
We very much look forward to our regular visitor friends from Merseyside and surrounding area's, even more so when the Footy Derbys take place.
In anticipation of your support - with YOU, we can put a stop to this!
Enjoy your festivities over the xmas period, we are going to be very busy early in the new year!
Thanks again Jimmy.
BV 100 - FOBVS will be hearing more in due course once we get complete clarification on details. Thanks!
Land is precious and worth more than gold at the moment in manchester and will be for the next 10 years. Unfortunately belle vue will not be saved and I don't think Andy Burnham will have any say whatsoever regarding the outcome of the planning for the belle vue site because there is to much money to be had by all parties and the deal is done. The council are seeing pound signs in respect of the revenue that will be achieved by the development compared with what they get from belle vue. Cash is king and unless you have cash you carnt rule.
I find it hard to belive, with the uncertinty of britex, a pension fund would sell a asset that provides a regular income for it`s members, what would make sense build appartment blocks either side of the track, keep the track and tie a company in for x amount of years..
