Invitation to Tea………………………………………………………………………………………………………

For once we saw the sun on a Bank holiday and it was enjoyed by about 30 guests in the lovely setting of Frank & Angela Jordan’s garden at Colks Farm.

The event was organised by the NNHSC and guests were greeted with a glass of Pimms by their hosts Frank & Angela, many of those who attended were past riders with the NNH Hunt and many a tale was being told of past hunting exploits, and we must thank our oldest member on the day Mrs D Jorden at 96 years young who enjoyed seeing some old friends again.

The afternoon’s proceedings continued with a beautiful selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes accompanied by NNH Hunt bubbly!

As everyone enjoyed the food and the afternoon sunshine, the younger members played Croquet on the lawn which was overseen for any foul play by Benjamin Jordan.

At the end of the afternoon all departed having had a lovely time and our thanks go to Angela and Frank for all their hard work and hope we can do it again in the future.

Pictures of the occasion can be seen in the Photo Albums section under Invitation to tea.

Kennels Open

Approximately 40 subscribers of the NNH & NNHSC attended the open afternoon at kennels in what turned out to be a lovely sunny afternoon.

The kennels had been opened to allow subscribers to see behind the scenes what actually is involved in turning out hounds twice a week in the season and also for some to see hounds that they had sponsored through the Hound Sponsorship, and catch up on there progress.

Nigel Kirk and Chris Carman were both on hand to answer any questions people had about the hounds and the day to day running of kennels.

Over the years many projects had been carried out to maintain the kennels with the help of membership fees and volunteer labour, just a few of these had been captured in pictures by Chris, and these plus interpretation information were displayed in the garden for people to see where there support for the hunt had been used over the years.

At 3.30 all visitors gathered outside the front of kennels to unveil a memorial plaque that had been installed in memory of a true hunt supporter Joanna Mytton, with moneys raised last year in memory of Joanna it was possible to replace the old and rotten stable doors and windows. Mr Bradbury introduced Mr Richard Mytton who gave a speech and thanked all the NNH for their support and duly unveiled the plaque, all assembled then raise a glass in memory of Joanna.

Afterwards a lovely tea was available for all to enjoy in the gardens.

Our thanks go to Nigel and Chris for being on hand to explain and guide people around kennels and to Sue Kirk for all her hard work in the kitchen serving tea, sandwiches and delicious cakes.

Countryside Alliance Countryside Classroom................

At Salle Park
On Wednesday 21st May 2014

We are looking for volunteer guides for the Norfolk countryside classroom which this year is at Salle Park on Wednesday 21st May. This is a very successful event and as those who have done it before will tell you is great fun and it is very rewarding to show children the animals and countryside.

There will be “walk the course” evenings on Monday 12th May and Wednesday 14th May at 18.00hrs. Guides will find it helpful to attend one of these evenings. The Monday walk will end with a hog roast and wine by way of a thank you. The stand holders are also invited on the Monday which will be a good opportunity to meet them.

Salle Park is at NR10 4SG, north of the Cawston to Reepham road, turning off that road at the sharp bend about ¾ of a mile outside Reepham. We will meet at Manor Farm, the next entrance on the right going north after the private entrance to Salle Hall, for both the ‘course walks’ and the event itself.
On the day please could you be there by 9.15am at the latest. The days run form 9.30am until approximately 15.00pm.

Please bring a picnic lunch to take with you, and suitable footwear and clothing.

Dogs are welcome but on leads at all times.Please shut any gates that you go through and do explain to the children why gates should be kept shut.

Please can you let Amanda Brownlow know as soon as possible if you can help and which training session you can attend either by telephone: 01263 740446, or email:

If you know of anyone else who would like to help please send email on to them or if they are not on email please ask them to phone me.

Thank you very much.
Best Wishes Amanda

End of Season Supper...........

At the end of a very enjoyable and eventful season the North Norfolk Harriers held there End of Season Supper at Erpingham Village Hall on Wednesday the 19th March.

Approximately 45 people turned out for yet another enjoyable evening.

The evening was opened with a speech from the Chairman Mr Tim Bulwer-Long thanking all the Masters, Huntsmen and Hunt staff for all their hard work throughout the season, and also to all those in the back ground who offer their services in a voluntary nature to make the North Norfolk Harriers a happy and enjoyable environment to be at, be it at a Meet or a social event organised by the Supporters Club.

The Chairman proceeded to thank the long running service of Tina Hayward following her resignation from the board as Hon Secretary this year, her time and dedication to the job over the many years were second to none and will be sorely missed. But hopefully will give her more time to be out in the field watching the next generation of pony club members take up the mantle.

With the formality’s over dinner was served and we were all treated to the delights of the main courses kindly cooked and donated by the subscribers, while dinner was taking place there was much chat and laughter at the picture show running in the background of a compilation of photographs taken over the season at the various meets.

With comments mainly about the horses turnout and the occasional humorous picture of our roadman in a bowler he had purloined from a member of the foot followers the inevitable Puddings were served again made by the subscribers, the standard of which seems to be raised each year, this must be down to a certain Mary Berry on the TV.

As the evening came to a close fun was had at the tables with a Guess the weight of the Huntsmans Horseshoes competition which caused much debate, with an uncanny method of judging the weight by the Deane,s, Ian Deane won by 0.7 of a Gram! Very impressive Mr Deane, and so took first prize of a bottle of winter warmer for the flask.

All agreed it was a very enjoyable season and everyone was looking forward to the forthcoming summers events.

A big thank you to all who had arranged the event, cooked the food and puddings and also to those on kitchen dutys who always put in the most work at these events.

NNH Mouse Racing Night ………………………

The NNH supporters club Mouse Racing night at Salle Village Hall was well supported on Wednesday evening, and with all awaiting with anticipation of what was to come the Evening started with Roger Bradbury auctioning off the competitor’s for the night with such names as Nibbles, Saucy Sue, Little Minnie and of course Rampant Roger.

After much bidding all Mice had new owners for the night and betting began at the Tote table with Tick Tack Dan overseeing the odds.

Racing for the evening was sometimes fast a furious and at other times we had time to relax as Wendy our race starter gave encouragement to some of the more inexperienced competitor’s.

With screams and shouts as some Mice turned back to their starting boxes, and after race four racing was suspended for a stewards enquiry! Supper was served by Sue Kirk who had been slaving in the kitchen to produce a very tasty sausage supper, followed by cream laden puddings.

With belly’s full (Mice that is!) racing restarted and by the final race Saucy Sue owned, trained and raced for the night by Sue Kirk was Queen Mouse.

Our thanks go to all our Sponsors for the evening, and a big thank you to Paul Stockdale and Wendy of Pickenham Pacers for putting on such a fun night, and to all who had helped make the night another to remember.

Boxing Day Meet: Sennowe Park

The traditional meet venue for Boxing Day at Sennowe Park was well supported as ever and we would all like to thank those who turned out on foot to support us to keep our hunting tradition alive. The forty plus mounted field had a memorable day, in and around the park and it was good to see a young lady from Florida riding traditional style which was a first for her, who along with her partner, joined a hunting field for the very first time.
Post hunting social media discussion reported much mud and tack cleaning required and also a lot of aching limbs, but resulting in a good day had by all.

Bangers, Mash and Carols Night.

A fantastic night was held at Glandford Mill by kind permission of Mr & Mrs Brownlow, with approximately fifty guests attending the annual Christmas Carols night, this year with a twist of Bangers & Mash and Mince Pies.
As the guests started to arrive they were treated to a glass or two of mulled wine or Mel’s special mulled apple which went down a treat.
I was good to see a lot of new faces turning out on a very blustery night to experience the delights that came from the NNH kitchen.
After much catching up supper was concluded and we were summoned to the upper living area by the lone horn blower to attend carols.
With the choirs throats suitable lubricated the busy kitchen staff was entertained by the carol singers from above, and the accompanying Horn.
Unfortunately the evening ended with everyone making a mad rush to their cars as the wind and rain was back with vengeance.
Again a big thank you to all who attended and helped with this very successful event.

And Happy Christmas from all at the NNH.
