The Hunt Supporters are organising a Tack and horse associated sale (riding clothes included) at Walkhampton Memorial Hall on Saturday 16thAugust commencing at 1pm.  A good opportunity to have a clear out of all the things we put to one side that we may need one day – and never do - or to purchase the things they do need at a reasonable rate for the forthcoming season. 


It will be a 60/40 sale (60% to the seller 40% to the Hunt)


If there is anybody unable to come themselves who may have things they would like to sell then the Hunt Supporters will run a table for them on a 50/50 basis.


Tea, coffee and cakes so all welcome to come and enjoy that as well.
