G.A.I.P (Greyhound Action in Peterborough) and B.G.A (Bedfordshire Greyhound Action) held another successful protest outside the stadium.

Many leaflets were distributed to racegoers, much to the anger of the stadium staff, who always seem to fail to stop the leaflets being distributed.

Great eye catching banners displayed showing just what the protest was for.


This is very sad news, from a country whose traditional form of ‘betting entertainment’ is buffalo and cock fighting. Now, the national assembly’s standing committee allows the government to issue regulations on dog and horse racing.


St Christopher’s Hospice charity fundraiser

Chris Ball Roofing are organising a charity fundraiser at Crayford greyhound stadium in October for St Christopher’s Hospice. Please send polite comments to St Christopher’s Hospice asking them to please decline from accepting money raised from greyhound racing. We are well aware that St C.H do wonderful work and we are sure they would not wish to support or benefit from money raised from greyhound cruelty, suffering and exploitation, once they have been made aware of the serious welfare issues surrounding greyhounds who are bred, used and disposed of by the greyhound racing industry Information of St.C.H work and their contact details are here:
