RJS Waste Gets Run for Their Money at Fontwell Racecourse.

When our contacts at Fontwell Racecourse asked if we’d like to sponsor some races we were chomping at the bit. An offer to meet our local community and clients at a one-of-a-kind track in the heart of West Sussex? Saddle us up!

Fontwell Racecourse sponsorship

Our Chichester community sponsorship game was straight out the gate at the start of 2024.

The beautiful partnership between RJS Waste and Fontwell races came around in the full spirit of give and take – a phrase thought to have come from when larger horses were given extra weight to carry, while smaller runners had weight taken off in early handicap contests.

After helping Fontwell Park with their WEEE collection and recycling needs we were asked if we’d like to sponsor Fontwell races throughout the year.

Set close to the home of RJS Waste Management’s head office, Fontwell Park is the only figure of eight jumps course in the UK. It’s also been voted the Best Small Racecourse in the Southeast for 19 years in a row.

The unusual shape of Fontwell Racecourse’s steeplechase track doesn’t suit all horses but some runners thrive there. What’s more, it provides great views, making it a hit with racing fans.

Monaveen was one horse who flourished at Fontwell in 1949. The first racehorse owned by the Queen and the Queen Mother, he went on to win more races and run in the Grand National. A topiary statue in his image can be found in the main enclosure. This honours Monaveen’s victory and his owners’ special bond with horseracing.

We have a 24 ft advertising board on the home straight at Fontwell Racecourse. See photo, below left, of our Sales Director Tony Wells standing proud next to our banner.

Pictured below right is the race programme from 14 February showing the RJS Waste Management Handicap Chase (Class 4). This featured nine runners and was won by Art Decco. Other notable races include the RJS Waste Management Handicap Hurdle on 18 March, won by Mumbles.

Our team looks forward to supporting more Fontwell Park racing events and meeting people from Chichester and the surrounding area who are passionate about the races.

The phrase “in the frame” also originates from horse racing. Before digital screens, race results were displayed using numbered boards in a large frame alongside the names of riders in the next race.

So, make sure we’re in the frame for your next groundworks, strip-out works or asbestos services project.
