The Country Land and Business Association Visit BTRC

On Wednesday 22nd February BTRC welcomed Henk Geertsema, PR & Communications Manager at The CLA to Whinney Hill to learn more about the work rehabilitating, retraining and rehoming thoroughbreds.

Henk interviewed BTRC CEO Gillian Carlisle ahead of writing a feature article for the CLA Land and Business Magazine. The Country Land and Business Association (CLA) is the membership organisation for owners of land, property and businesses in rural England and Wales. The CLA exists to champion, protect and enhance the rural economy, environment and way of life. They aspire to unlock the potential of the rural economy by promoting innovative ideas to a national audience and providing practical support to members. BTRC are a long-standing member of the CLA.

Henk said of his visit “It was such a privilege to meet the super team at The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre – doing such worthy work is much respected. Super impressed by the team’s passion, friendliness and hard work. Now, I’ll have a massive challenge in writing a feature to do the Centre’s work justice!”

The feature is set to be published in the May edition of the magazine.
