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.

THE NORTH NORFOLK HARRIERS HUNTER TRIAL – 19 OCTOBER 2013
The North Norfolk Harriers held their autumn Hunter Trial at Heydon Hall on Saturday 19 October. Despite the fact that the event was held on a Saturday, over 100 horses and ponies were entered. Chris Carmen’s course was run in the opposite direction to the 2012 event, and rode extremely well. A tarpaulin “puddle” in the time section sorted out the “wheat from the chaff”, and made good viewing for spectators. All six classes were well filled, keeping the starter and the fence judges busy for most of the day.
New for this year was the second-hand “horsey stuff” stall and the NHH refreshment area, both of which were well received. Richard Weller-Poley’s photography unit also proved popular.
Thank you to all of those who entered, and a very well done to those who went home with rosettes. We hope you all enjoyed your day, and will come again next time.
Finally, a huge thank-you to the Bulwer-Long family for having us back again, and to all those people who gave us their time and energy, both before and on the day. It takes about 50 people to make this hunter trial possible, and we are hugely grateful to you all.
