posted on 4 March, we are happy to post the following clarification:
Last December Kempton Park terminated the agreement they had with a children’s cycling club which allowed access to the Kempton Park estate in return for a fee of £48 per session.
Kempton Park wished the fee to rise to £500 per session. This more than ten-fold increase effectively ended the venture which had been going for the previous three years.
The cycle club have told us that, with the help of individuals and a company connected at a senior level to The Jockey Club, an agreement has very recently been reached that the per session fee will rise by only 50 per cent to £72. The cycle club hopes to resume their sessions at Kempton Park later this month.
