Tags: MansionBet ARC JCR David Leyden Dunbar, ARC’s group director of partnerships added: “It’s been terrific to work with the team at MansionBet since 2019 and to watch our partnership along with the brand’s commitment to British Horseracing go from strength to strength.” In 2020, MansionBet also signed sponsorship deals in other areas of sport, becoming the main shirt sponsor and betting partner of English Championship football club Bristol City. That led to racing being suspended from March, returning in June to take place behind closed doors, with some fixtures in the fourth quarter of the year even welcoming back limited numbers of spectators. Email Address “Our racecourse teams look forward to working with them again in 2021 and delivering a fantastic schedule of racing across many of our courses throughout the year.” Regions: UK & Ireland It will also become the official betting partner of Goodwood’s opening Saturday, both of which will be broadcast live on TV channel ITV1. Mansion Group’s sports betting brand MansionBet has renewed its sponsorship agreements with Arena Racing Company (ARC) and Jockey Club Racecourses (JCR) to continue supporting British racing in 2021. The operator last year’s sponsorship was successful, in spite of the disruption caused by the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. “We are both excited and proud to continue our support of British racing into 2021,” Mansion’s chief marketing officer David Murphy said. “Having taken huge steps forward to improve our racing product over the last 12 months, we continue to strive to deliver the best offering to our customers. The operator has also been official UK betting partner of Newcastle United since 2019, in a deal covering the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons. The partnership sees MansionBet operate betting terminals inside the team’s home stadium, St. James’ Park. “2020 was a challenging year for racecourses across the country and we’re pleased to be able to put our name to over 60 events at 26 different venues in 2021.” This sees the brand sponsor over 360 races across 60 fixtures, including title sponsorship of Newbury’s Spring Cup. Throughout the 2020 season, MansionBet branding appeared across a number of racecourses , ending the year with the MansionBet Challow Hurdle day last week at Newbury.

Howard Lake | 6 September 2010 | News London Councils is inviting voluntary organisations to tell them what should happen to its London-wide grants budget. It has opened a consultation to find out the best way of using the money for the benefit of boroughs, voluntary groups and people living in the capital.Under the existing system, London’s boroughs take a decision each year to pool some of their funding and fund voluntary services on a regional level through the London Councils Grants Programme. But is this the best way for the money to be used, or can boroughs achieve a greater impact by spending money on their own locally determined priorities?The consultation will run until 10 November 2010.Chair of London Councils Grants Committee, Mayor Sir Steve Bullock said: “Circumstances are very different now to when the programme was last reviewed five years ago and we need to make sure that local communities are getting the most from this money. We urge as many voluntary groups as possible, whether or not they receive funding under the existing scheme, to put forward their views so that any decision made has full and comprehensive input on the implications for the voluntary sector.”www.londoncouncils.gov.uk/grants/aboutourfunding/futureofgrants.htm Tagged with: Funding Law / policy London AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis How should London grants budget be spent? 23 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

WhatsApp Pinterest By admin – April 26, 2018 Facebook Twitter Facebook Local NewsGovernment Mayor David Turner said the Odessa City Council could appoint Michael Marrero as the permanent city manager in as soon as three weeks, praising the interim top administrator’s work since the elected officials sacked his predecessor in September.“He is doing a phenomenal job,” Turner said. “We are working on a contract to make him the permanent city manager.”Turner delivered the news about Marrero’s appointment during his annual State of the City speech today. The mayor focused on recent and upcoming city projects in the speech, while omitting any discussion of the turmoil stemming from the City Council during the past year and complaining repeatedly about the news media.“The city leadership is in great shape,” Turner said.The mayor said the city is facing difficulty with employee vacancies amid the oil boom and rising costs of living. The city reported 133 vacant positions in late March — up from 88 a year ago.“Cities are experiencing the same attrition everyone else has,” Turner said.Vacancies include the two assistant city manager positions.Much of the mayor’s speech involved downtown Odessa, where construction crews are building the city-supported hotel and conference center that is expected to open in early 2019.In the next year, the mayor outlined plans to add lighting to the area, among other work. The city is also tweaking incentive programs to spur redevelopment in the area around the hotel. Meanwhile, the city is ramping up traffic and building code enforcement.Citywide projects the mayor touted included a new app that he said would make it easier for citizens to access city services and separate ordinances passed by the City Council in the past year that target problems of heavy truck traffic and underage drinking.Turner called for new fire stations, particularly in northern Odessa, where he said the city needs at least two amid surging demand for ambulance services in Ector County.To help keep up with growth in the city and along its boundaries, the mayor outlined a series of road improvements he said are needed and called for “selective annexation” to shore up revenue for the city.The months ahead may also see the city invest in improvements to the city’s drinking water supply, funded in part by the revenue brought in by selling treated wastewater to the oil company Pioneer Natural Resources. Turner said a study examining adding a reverse osmosis system to the water treatment plant should yield results within a few months.“One of our goals is to be able to soften your water, so that you’ll have the best water in West Texas,” Turner said.Mayor David Turner speaks about priorities for Odessa before June 2019, the city’s financial picture, crime numbers, road projects, truck routes, employee shortages, water projects, underage drinking, the Odessa app and other items during the State of the City Address this afternoon at the MCM Grande Hotel and FunDome.Jacob Ford|Odessa American WhatsApp Twitter Previous articleTEA awards ‘Grow Your Own’ grantsNext articleThree indicted on capital murder charges admin Mayor: City manager appointment imminent Pinterest
iStock(LOS ANGELES) — A Los Angeles-area family had a reason to celebrate on Thursday when a man revealed that he discovered their missing dog wandering in New Mexico — nearly 700 miles away from his home.Bella apparently made the trek to Las Cruces all alone, crossing two state lines and entering an entirely different time zone, according to El Paso, Texas, ABC affiliate KVIA-TV.The pup, a black and white husky, eventually wandered into the care of Juan Treto, a New Mexico State University student, who says he instantly fell in love with her. He spent about six weeks fostering her and trying to locate her owners.“Bella” made a 700-mile trip from California to New Mexico where she was found and eventually returned to her owner.“I thought maybe she was on a vacation or something,” Treto told KVIA-TV. “I could tell that she just wanted to be loved.”He said he formed a tight bond with the pup, who he called Annie, but he continued to search for her owners.Chip-tracking data eventually led him to the dog’s rightful owner, Jessica Smith.“I think she was more surprised that her dog was in New Mexico,” Treto said. “She said that she had lost her in Orange County, and had no idea that someone from New Mexico would end up calling her.”Smith said it felt like her prayers had been answered when she finally got the call saying Bella was safe.“I have two daughters, and they have been heartbroken,” Smith told KVIA-TV. “I didn’t think we were ever going to hear about her again. I thought, ‘I hope she didn’t get eaten.’ I was thinking the worst.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
With their new single, the wonderfully titled ‘Diamond Hoo Ha Men’, Supergrass remain, as ever, comfortably within the mainstream boundaries the band have always been so fond of. The bass seems like a cheap imitation of The White Stripes’ Blue Orchid, and the lyrics ‘I’ve got to get you in my suitcase’ patently echo the band’s desire to reinvigorate the last chagrins of youth and originality which exist within them. And yet, the song is alluring. The bass has a dirty ring to it, and the chords, although simple, have a familiarity that evokes notions of simple, good rock. This, in a sense, has always been both the dilemma and the art of Supergrass – they are wonderful at imitation, but not so much at innovation. by Dave Wise
