Hound Sponsorship

Hound Sponsorships

 All 41 1/2 couple V&C hounds are now very happily sponsored. Thank you so much to everyone for your generous support with this fund-raiser. Let's hope your chosen hounds do very well for you this season. The first hound awards will be presented at the end of the month.

This season we will be running the monthly hound awards, judged by Dan Mellor MFH, the £25 draw and the Junior Hunt Club 'Know Your Hound Award' to be awarded on the last Saturday of each month. Good Luck to everyone with the chance of winning a rosette or £25

A huge thank you for supporting this important fund-raiser. We all enjoy our hunting for many reasons but we would not be able to continue without our hounds.
