Introducing the winner and runners-up in our Hunt Tumblers' Club competition

Tuesday, 21 April 2015

Having received a huge number of photos for our Tumblers' Club competition supported by Pol Roger Champagne, the entries have been vigorously studied and a decision made. Judged by a panel of hunting supporters including The Field's Ali Henson and three-day eventer Harry Meade, plus representatives from Pol Roger and the Countryside Alliance, it was a tough decision and a very closely fought competition. Thank you to everyone who entered.  Congratulations to the winning photographer, Ella Meadows, and tumbler Sam Matthews, who will each receive a tankard and a magnum of Pol Roger champagne. Ella took this photo captioned “I would bend over backwards to continue hunting” on 14th December 2014 at a joint meet between the Weston and Banwell and the Taunton Vale Harriers.
