THE WESTERBY BASSETS

June 9th, 2015 in Notice Board by admin

The Westerby Bassets welcome followers of all ages. They are the only pack of English Bassets in the country, and cover an area centered between Lutterworth and Market Harborough, extending north to parts of Rutland and south into Northamptonshire.

They meet every Saturday and Wednesday afternoon from October through to March and follow trails laid in compliance with the Hunting Act. You can walk or run as much or as little as you like, or just stand on a hill with good company and watch.

No previous experience is required; all you need are a pair of wellies and a waterproof jacket. A small donation is collected at the meet before hounds move off and teas are provided at the end of the afternoon.

The hounds are exercised 3 mornings a week throughout the summer on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday mornings
at around 8.30am. These are walks around the local villages such as Stanford, at a comfortable walking pace, lasting between 30mins and an hour. We welcome anyone who would like to walk out with the hounds in the summer, the more the merrier!

The Westerby also has a varied programme of social events throughout the year, from Hunt Suppers, Open Days, Terrier and Family Dog Show, a Barn Dance, a Bridge Drive and many more.

If you would like any more information, please contact the Secretary, Mrs Sarah West on 07801 635081 or westpriory@outlook.com or contact Mark Luxton at The Kennels on 01455 559453.
