Hunt Calendar | 2018

The Hunt Calendar  2018  Organised by the Hunt Supporters’ Club, it is available now at £10 per copy.


The images chosen are all by
Sue and Joe Bird and reflect the changing nature of the hunt over the course of last season. Sheila will have them for sale from now on whenever we see each other, so do please seek her out. 

All proceeds go to hunt funds.

Team Gold!


Master Vicki Wilkins reports: Kate Simmonds, Harry Wilkins and Alice Crowley (here with India Piper-Dadswell from the East Sussex) (second left) were selected as part of team of 4 to represent the British Showjumping Sussex Area at the National Inter Academy Championships. They won gold defeating 24 teams from all over the UK. In addition Alice won individual gold and Kate was 4th individually. All 3 of them hunt regularly with the Chid and Lec on these very versatile and talented ponies.”

Giant Sunflower Competition | Winner

The results are in from the panel of distinguished judges (Sheila and Tim). In a hotly-contested competition with entries from far and near, we can announce that the cultivator of the tallest sunflower in our hunt country (as far as we were aware by the closing date) is….Alfie Summerhayes

As you can see Alfie’s sunflower is
gigantic, coming in at a whopping  9 ft 3 in, which is something equally huge in metric and so enormous that our very tall First Whip had to stand on part of a ladder, which frankly is not as secured as we might hope for this purpose, but the message is clear: this is one prize-winning sunflower!

Reid Summerhayes, also pictured here, accepted the prize on behalf of Alfie.
