People often wonder how donations and other sources of funding are used.
Firstly we must emphasise that there are absolutely no administration charges. Every penny goes to the maintenance of the Racecourse for the safety and enjoyment of all.
The following are just some of the many expenses incurred by the Haverfordwest Racecourse to keep this hugely valuable resource looking good and providing a natural and pleasant environment for all to enjoy.
Annual rent payable to Portfield Recreation
Ground/hedge clearance (bushwhacking) around the horseshoe and paths
Repair and replacement of seating
Removal of damaged concrete seats from paths
Repairs to old seats and purchase of new seats
Tree pruning and safety
Clearance of fallen trees after storm damage
Tractor running costs (Fuel, repairs and insurance)
Maintenance of tractor and grass cutter
Car parking tarmac repairs
Surface water drainage works
Website annual costs
Dog waste bins
In addition we have to be prepared for the inevitable need to eventually replace the tractor, grass cutters and other unforeseen expenditure.
