The BBC series Park Life begins on Tuesday 4th July on More4 at 9.00 pm. Episode 1 features hound trailing, including the drone footage filmed at Buttermere last October.

 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT.    A substantial amount of money was taken from a handbag on the front seat of a hound van at Buttermere trails on Thursday 1st June.

There were plenty of walkers passing through as well as hound trailers – we would like to think that it wasn’t a fellow hound trailer, and would hope that it was an isolated incident.

It’s a warning to people to be more careful where they leave their belongings and to keep an eye out to avoid it happening again.

 

From Joanna Satterthwaite – I would like to thank everyone who came on Friday night, also people who donated raffle prizes, gave donations, tri casts, raffle tickets, horses & jockeys! It was a brilliant night. Special thanks to Amy, Norma , Kirsty, Jenny , Caz, Martin, Sophie & Katie - we could not have done it without you!! We have raised a massive £1438.41, which is amazing. I will stop hounding everyone for money now, until next year of course! Thanks all again. All the hard work has paid off!! Well done everyone!
