Thank you so much to our host and all of the farmers and landowners for allowing us on their land. It is greatly appreciated by all the members, subscribers and followers of the hunt.
Our annual Point to Point meeting is being held once again on Easter Saturday and more details will be published soon, on Facebook as well as on our website.
As always, there will be plenty of opportunity for traders to sell their products on the course. Please contact Sue Palmer via e-mail: email@example.com if you would like to apply for a trade stand.
The 2016 Exclusive Ashford Valley Tickham Hunt Calendar is ready and will be on sale at all meets between now and Christmas for £10.00. Are you in it? You need to buy one to see! Don’t forget to bring your money to the meets and look out for Victoria who will be selling them. They make excellent Christmas presents for all the family. We will sell any we have left to the general public on Boxing Day so get your copy asap. Last year we ran out – don’t be left without one….
Thank you to all our sponsors and photograph contributors.
Just a reminder about a few things!
Please ensure that your vehicles are left safe and secure while you are hunting. Make sure that all valuables are hidden from view.
Before leaving for home, have a check-around to make sure that your vehicle hasn’t been tampered with and that your lights, indicators are all working correctly. Importantly, make sure your trailer is still correctly secured to the towing vehicle.
If you see anyone acting suspiciously during the day or needs questions answered, please inform one of the Masters, the Hon. Secretary or a committee member.
If a crime is being committed , dial 999 straight away. Don’t take the law into your own hands.
Always report a crime so that it is on record!
Make sure that you tell someone when you retire from your day’s hunting. We don’t want to be hunting for some that has gone home!
Be safe and enjoy the day.
A new season is beginning and thus the 200 Club begins for another year. Over the past ten years this club has raised around £20,000 for Hunt funds and I would like to take this opportunity of thanking all those supporters who purchased tickets last Season helping raise the sum of £2,180 for Hunt funds.
The 200 Club is the Hunt’s own lottery, tickets cost £10 and for that your number is entered in up to 8 draws throughout the season and if you win your ticket goes back into the remaining draws. Prizes range from £15 to £50 (£100 on Boxing Day) and all proceeds go to the Hunt. There is no limit to the number of tickets you can buy, the more tickets you have the greater your chances of winning.
Fund raising and the weather play an enormous part in the survival of the Ashford Valley Tickham Hunt, the weather we have no control over but fund raising we do, we can all do our bit. The advantage with the 200 Club is that you do not have to buy an expensive dress, find a baby sitter, build a fence, be up at the crack of dawn – all you need to do is complete the form below and return it to me, job done. PLEASE also take the time to ask a friend, relative, neighbour to buy a ticket as the more members we have the more prizes we can give. Remember you have to be in it to win it.
Good Luck – Sue Palmer
