After the fantastic success of the Bullaton Pleasure Ride, which raised over £1,800 of much needed hunt funds, we are already working on the next event. This will be the Sigford Fun Ride on Sunday 9th August. These events take a lot of preparation and we are therefore asking for volunteers to help in the following ways:-

• To join a working party on Wednesday evening, 29th July, 7.00 till dark. This is to strim round and repair jumps on Rora Down (by kind consent of

Jill Gratton


• To mark the course and help set out the portable jumps on Saturday, 8th August. Time TBC.
• To steward on the course on the day.
• To make a cake for Hilary and Carol to sell on our catering stall. (It’s a popular feature that made a profit of over £350 at our first event).
• To help clear up after the event, loading jumps and taking down course markers. Day/time TBC.

Please contact me or

**chairmans update**
Dear All,
I am writing to you following the announcement, by the MFHA , bringing the Season to a sudden end. After what has been a very wet Season, it is very disappointing to have to end it this way, especially with the departure of Louise, Robert and Caroline.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our farmers and landowners for allowing us over some of the best hunting country in Devon. Huge thanks also go to our friends that have hosted meets and made us feel so welcome.
The Corona Virus has brought difficult times and will have an immense impact on local and national business, and a detrimental effect on the South Devon Hunt. With not only the loss of six days hunting,we are also going to lose the Grand National Night, End of Season Supper and all other events for the for seeable future. The result of this will have a negative impact on our finances and ability to raise funds. Myself and my Committee will be exploring new ways to make up the shortfall.
I ask you all to help us financially through this difficult time. Please keep an eye out for these communications regarding future fund raising. Your generosity would be gratefully appreciated.
Please remember we are still collecting for Louise, Robert and Caroline. All donations should be sent to David Ellis with a note as to how you would like your money apportioned. At this time, it appears that we cannot hold a presentation event, however, we will try our best to mark the occasion and publicise it.
Thank you all so much for your support this Season, let us look forward to late Summer events and Autumn hunting back on schedule.
If you have received this letter by post and have an e-mail address that we could use instead, please let us know. ( or
Best Wishes
Rodney Cleave


Hunt Ball

Have you booked your tickets yet?
The masters and committee of the South Devon Hunt are very excited to invite you to our annual Hunt Ball on the 14th December 2019.

Once again we have booked the marvellous Bootlegger’s Turn to dance the night away too!
Although this year we have made a slight change. For those of you who don’t fancy spending the evening on the dance floor, we have opened up another room away from the noise where you will be entertained and can spend the evening catching up with friends!

This is a black tie event so we expect to see everyone putting on their fanciest frocks and dinner suits and join us in enjoying a festive evening??

we understand that Christmas is a super busy time to see friends and family, so why not bring them along? Get a group of 10 or more together and you can have a table all to your self!

with a bit of luck there will be a card machine on the bar so you won’t have to rely on cash, but you will be needing some for the raffle!

please don’t hesitate to contact Anke Ellis and book your tickets now.

we work really hard to put event on like this and we want lots of people to come and enjoy it. Hope to see you there!

more information will be following soon…….
