Fontwell Park stages another of its popular family fun racedays on Sunday afternoon.

Apart from a full afternoon of jump racing, there is plenty of free entertainment for the children including fun fair rides, bouncy castles, face painters, and the Young Hooves Kids Club.

The main sponsors of the day are the Sussex Snowdrop Trust, a unique charity providing care at home for local children who have a life-threatening illness or who may be terminally ill.
