Plumpton Racecourse
Plumpton's Local Legends


As a team we know that we rely on many people throughout the year to make our racedays and indeed the racecourse tick. And whilst a 'thank you', outward recognition, personal satisfaction or even a financial reward are all great and really valued means of praise, we wanted to see what we could do to expand on that within our community.

The criteria is simple: we want to hear about local unsung heroes who give up their time to help others and make a positive contribution to society.

So, if this sounds like a colleague, volunteer, community warrior or someone from your community, volunteer group or place of work (or indeed from somewhere we haven’t mentioned), then we want you to nominate them!

All we need from you to nominate is a recent photo, some details of the nominated person we can contact them on and a description of what they do so well to deserve the nomination.

The more details the better and the more community orientated they are or the more positive details of what they do for others you can provide, the better.

Please send these to us by clicking the NOMINATE HERE button below.

From our side we will give the chosen nominations a table for 4 in the Paddock Restaurant on a raceday, organise a trip to the Parade Ring to see the horses up close and of course get a mention within that day's racecard – it is a cracking day and something the nomination will so deserve and hopefully really enjoy.

So please get those nominations rolling in – all you have to do is click the button below or email: and get voting for these awesome people now!

Terms and conditions
  • We anticipate a high volume of nominations and we only have a limited amount of racedays and so unfortunately making a nomination does not guarantee they will be a winner of this specific prize. We also cannot guarantee all racedays are available and so we will contact the chosen winner with restaurant availability.
  • By nominating your local hero, you accept that we will pass on your name to the winners to confirm how we received their details.
  • The nominated persons are the ones who receive the prize, nominators have no right to attend.
  • The prize is strictly limited to a table of 4 in the Paddock Restaurant. If the Final Fence Restaurant is open, with the nominations agreement they may be given a table of 4 in this location for the day.
  • The racecourse’s decision on winners is final.
