Wedding 31st August 2019

Damon and I can’t express our thanks enough to Greg and everyone at the Manning Valley Race club for making our wedding day just perfect. From the ceremony right through to the end of the reception we couldn’t fault anything. The reception room looked stunning especially with the amazing new refurbishment! All our needs and wants were catered for right from the very start. Highly recommend manning valley race club and the facilities for weddings or any functions.

“My visit to Manning Valley Race Club on 4/1/2018 (Harrington Cup Day) was greatly enjoyed and I must say that in my opinion the facilities on course are of a high standard for Country Racing in NSW.  Low cost entry gate, race book and lunch prices are appreciated by all racegoers and the genuine friendly service provided by your staff throughout the course is of the highest order.  The presentation of the track and the facilities reflects the hard work by your ground staff and they should take pride, it was clearly reflected by the quality racing on the day.   

I am sure the high attendance (record crowd?) will be repeated often and I wish only the best for your newly formed organisation. Well done.

I have over 30 yrs experience in country racing as a participant (owner), race organiser and race sport reporter.  I have attended a large percentage of the racecourses located throughout NSW and many more across Australia and internationally, accordingly, my comments above are offered in sincere appreciation.”

“Just a short note to tell you that we had a wonderful night for my daughter’s wedding held at the function centre on the 11th of October. Thanks very much to Greg and Brian who couldn’t have been more helpful in the organising of the wedding; Greg ringing us several times to check if everything was ok. The venue itself was spectacular, as was the catering and the bar staff. We would have no hesitation in recommending the function centre to our friends as everything stressful was taken care of by your wonderful staff. Once again, thanks for a great night. Thanking you.”

Sincerely.”

“When I was at Upper Lansdowne Players earlier this year, I was lucky enough to win first prize in their raffle. I won entry to Taree races for four people with entry tickets, race books, two course dinner, a bottle of wine and a cheese board. I, Morag Peters, and my husband John, and two of our friends (Bernice & Di) had the honour of using this prize at Taree Races on the 1st December. We were welcomed like VIP’s and were shown to a table that was at the window opposite the finishing post, with a big reserved sign and my name on. We were given a bottle of wine and asked to call them when we wanted out lunch. We were treated very well and were pleased with the service we received. We could have done better at the horses but we all had a great day and we are sending our letter of appreciation. Thank you again.”
