The Old Berkeley Hunt at Shendish

Hemel Hempstead Gazette

28th June 1890



Kings Langley



A large number of ladies and gentlemen more or less interested in hunting and hounds, met at Shendish [Kings Langley] to inspect right couples of puppies of the season. The judges were Mr R Worrall and Mr Charles Harris of the Hertfordshire Hunt. The first prize was given to Mr Clutterbuck for the best dog puppy. The second prize to Mr Rose? For the next best. The first prize for the best bitch puppy was given to Mr Blanchard, and the second to Mr Drew. A luncheon was provided in a marquee by Mr Buck of Watford. The Earl of Clarendon presided. Among those present were -- Mr A H Longman, the former Master of the Hunt, the Hon A H Holland Hibbert, the treasurer, Mr R W Webber, the secretary, and a number of others whose names are well known in the local hunting circles. "Toasts" were given and speeches were made, and "the meet" was a very pleasant one.
