This evening will see hundreds of people from across Romford and the wider London area flock to Romford as the town's greyhound stadium fully reopens after a £10million refurbishment.
Back in March last year Ladbrokes Coral Group, which operates the stadium in London Road, said it would be giving the venue a complete overhaul.
Work began in May 2018, and included the demolition of the Main Stand to create more than 100 car parking spaces, a modernisation of the reception area and office building and a new track that was put down in September.
A Coral Ladbrokes spokeswoman told the Recorder: "Tonight is the night! Friday September 6 officially sees the mayor open the £10m refurbishment to the public where they can enjoy a brand new stand and track.
"The new stand, 'The Coral stand', boasts new bars, tote betting facilities, snack bar and restaurant, The Paddock.
