Keeping my promise to the racing fans, I had six years to bring off something special for Lewes. So in April 2012 I formed a club and called it the Lewes Racecourse Club. I handpicked a committee that I thought had the same passion as me about the racecourse and once we got £7,800. Heritage Lottery Fund the Lewes Racecourse Club put on a fantastic three day event and gave the people something to remember for a long time and after the event, we donated £200. to Lewes Victoria Hospital, also took John Ffitch-heyes, Ann Ffiitch-Heyes, Suzy Smith and Sergio Gordon-Watson for a meal in the White Hart and thanked them for all their support.
We still have many followers including the top trainer in Europe John Gosden, retired Jockeys Bunny Hicks, Bobby Elliott and Bryan Leyman. The Racing Post, Plumpton and Brighton Racecourses, Newmarket Racing Museum, Tim Cox from the Horse racing library, racing author Chris Pitt, (A long time gone) and Stewart Nash, (An illustrated history of Plumpton Racecourse) plus Mick Symes and his members of Lewes Past and Present. All memorabilla we collected of the racecourse, we are willing to buy and assure you that it will go to the Lewes Museum for safe keeping. As over the years, I have heard about clubs taking memorabilia from the public and selling it on, once there club folds.
