Retailers in the affluent town of Bawtry are teaming up with Doncaster Racecourse in a bid to boost business.
As the town prepares to welcome rock legends Status Quo for a landmark concert at Doncaster Racecourse plans are also taking shape for a packed racing schedule at the third ‘Visit Bawtry’ Race Meeting.
Retailers in Bawtry are sponsoring the entire race card to promote their businesses and the town of Bawtry whilst supporting Doncaster Racecourse.
Rebecca Dickenson, chairman of Bawtry Retail Association, said:“Bawtry and Doncaster Racecourse are both proud of the part they have played in Doncaster’s heritage and enjoy combining their individual strengths to create a memorable evening’s racing.
“It is always a fantastic evening and will be made even more special with a chance for race goers to see one of the UK’s most well known rock bands.”
Retailers in the town who are sponsoring the races include The Crown Hotel, Robinsons of Bawtry, China Rose Cantonese Restaurant, Fine and Country Estate Agents, Caviars of Bawtry, Incognito and Walsh and West Commercial Risks Ltd.
“It is expected to be a sell out event so we’re urging people to secure their tickets early,” said Ms Dickensen.
“It will be another superb way to put Bawtry on the map - educating race goers just what a great place it is to shop, socialise, stay, live and do business.”
The event has been organised by Bawtry Retail Association (BRA) which is a member organisation dedicated to promoting Bawtry as a retail and social destination. The towns retailers range from designer clothing boutiques for all the family, art galleries, gift shops, home accessories and specialist food outlets.
Businesses in Bawtry came together for a week long fashion extravaganza just last month.
Speaking about the event Ms Dickenson said: “Bawtry Fashion Week is another shining example of what businesses can achieve when they work together.
“Members of Bawtry Retail Association all have a common aim - to promote Bawtry as a fantastic place to work, live, shop and socialise - and we achieve this by ensuring we offer fantastic service and a great experience.
“Bawtry Fashion Week has positioned Bawtry as the fashion capital of the area - amazing brands, amazing service and amazing ways in which we promote them.”
