Christmas is nearly upon us and what more could you want to open on Christmas morning than lots of Southdown and Eridge merchandise? There are a wide range of items available from Pat Blackburn or Debbie Stevens. Calendars can be purchased from Sandy Alders priced at just £10. Christmas cards which have pictures of Stuart and hounds are £6 for 10 from Anne. The 200 Club has tickets still available also from Sandy for £10. The Little Hunting Handbook which tells you everything about hunting from correct dress to beahviour in the field is available from either secretary. This costs £10 or £12 by post, with a £1 donation to the Hunt Staff Benefit Society.
The Rac Night took place on the 21st November, this was a good night and those who supported it had an enjoyable evening. However events are still not being supported enough, they are good fundraisers for the supporters club. The supporters provided the hunt staff with 2 new horses this season, without your support this may not be able to continue.
As a reminder to all Southdown Supporters, Jenny Bean and Sadie Crisp are no longer membership secretaries. Please send all new subscriptions to Karen Leach. Antony Freeman remains Eridge secretary.
