Security When Hunting or at Shows



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.
