HFEC may be closing!

| June 9th, 2014 | Comments Off on HFEC may be closing!

Hi Everyone We are aware of a number of rumours going around about the indoor arena possibly closing as of 9.06.14. We wish to confirm that there is a high probability that this will happen within the next couple of months.  There is a Company who would like to use our indoor arena as a new children’s play activity centre where families can bring their children and be entertained. Planning Permission has been obtained and the legal process has commenced but there is no guarantee that this change will complete, but we wanted riders to be aware that is is probable. We will keep you all informed on progress and we are running our competitions as normal until such time as we advise otherwise. We hope you will all still support us at our forthcoming events and carry on hiring the arena as normal.
