“I don’t know about you, I need a nap!”


Demonstrating an essential skill used when following hounds; drinking tea. (Or something!)

Once again the Ashford Valley Tickham Hunt were very fortunate to let school children have the chance to meet some of our hounds. This year the honour fell to two of the younger members of the pack ‘Fashion and Raspberry’.

Fashion and Raspberry Meet The Kids.

“Did you get me a coffee Ron?”

From the safety of their specially constructed pen, the two hounds could see some of the two and a half thousand visitors to the exhibition without being mobbed.
