Summer Newsletter 2023

Being as we have not had a Spring Newsletter this year, due to unforeseen circumstances, a quick resume of last season's hunting.

Scenting conditions were not brilliant due to the dry conditions but one old boy particularly stands out – Porlock who is now 8 years old! (Porlock was walked and sponsored by George Busby and Cheryl Blakeway respectively)

We have now got Happy back from the North Herefordshire, a good job too, as she has done well at the shows this season!

The much needed building repair work is steadily being carried out at the kennels with the valleys on the roof on the feed house being completed (so there is no longer any danger of electric shock from the switches!) and a whole new roof being put on the whelping area.

The Albrighton Hounds have done extremely well at the shows they have attended, the show results are as follows:
