WALK from LONG CAR PARK ☆ Ashdown Forest:
Sunday 19th March 2017

This is the second year that the Club has held its AGM in Nutley and proceeded it with this walk at nearby Long Car Park.

The proximity of these two venues is designed to make it as convenient as possible for members to attend the AGM and participate in Club matters. However, the lure of hearing our revered Chairman and Committee members delivering their reports continues to fail to quicken the hearts of many members, and numbers attending were disappointingly low.

Still, the walk was rather fun.

As with most ‘meets’ this year, we were joined by new hounds - and they are very welcome.

Among these was Dylan and Dougal, Miranda and Derek’s inherited long-haired Dachsunds. Both are quite elderly - one even blind - but even he gamely managed the walk.

On the track back to the car park the group passed a pond which proved too much of a temptation for some of the hounds, much to the consternation of their owners.

Still, we all knew what we were getting into when we chose Basset Hounds as pets!
