The revised East Anglian Hound Show, kindly sponsored by Mr Jeremy Lawes, held within Horseheath Country Fair on Sunday, 6 July, is now in its second year.

The show saw five packs showing some quality hounds, judged by
Dick Chapman, huntsman of the newly-formed Moorlands Hunt.

The champion doghound was Cottesmore Whopper and the champion bitch was Suffolk Bonfire, who went on to stand supreme and win the Essex County Shield.
