VWH HUNT FARMERS & SUPPORTERS CLUB

The VWH Farmers and Supporters Club works to support the activities of the hunt and relationships with farmers and foot followers. The committee are energetic fund-raisers and work to raise money for various equipment and projects needed to run the Hunt Kennels.

The FSC therefore holds a variety of events throughout the year and has merchandise for sale. Volunteers from the FSC also raise money at meets through the Whisky Draw and also for good causes such as the Earl Hague Poppy Appeal.

Gavin MacEchern, Chairman of the VWH hands the keys of the new Fallen Stock Vehicle to Chris.

The vehicle was donated by the Farmers and Supporters Club.

The 2017 FSC donation to the hunt is a new Fallen Stock Collection vehicle (the Knacker van). A Knacker vehicle may not sound a very exciting piece of equipment, but it is in fact absolutely vital to the effective running of the Hunt and the work of our Kennelman, Chris Bolland. It is utilized for picking up of fallen stock from our farmers. This ensures we can provide and excellent servie to our farmers by removing fallen stock more cheaply and efficiently than any other collections service and secondly, the fallen stock provides most of the feed for the hounds. This vehicle replaces the one that has been in use since 2010 and which was also purchased by the FSC. It has been well looked after and therefore has a resale value. Oli Avery maintains the vehicles and sourced the new one. He and Gordon Smith have refurbished and transferred the aluminium container to the new vehicle.
