    Overall for what I wanted it was a good event, however there was also a lot of disappointment, the event village was just one expensive food seller and a stall selling Bobby hats, which for me is way off an event village. My family came with me thinking they could have a choice of foods and a wonder around some stalls at least, considering they had a 2 hour wait for me 😌, there was not even a shelter for them to sit and drink a coffee or eat. I would think for the 2 thousand or so entrants who most brought family /supporters opening part of Aintree up for them would have created more of an income stream. Think the organisation missed out on a money earner there.
