Covid update 14th September 2020

 
 
 
Important Covid Update
 
 
Due to ongoing changes in Westminster over the weekend, the drafting of the final Covid legislation relating to "Organised outdoor activities" is still evolving, and some Police forces do not yet have a full understanding of it.    
 
The Hunting Office is working hard to clarify the situation and get firm advice on Hunting operations. We are confident that Hunting will be able to continue and will issue more guidance as soon as we can.  
 
For the time being, it is essential that anyone coming out hunting (mounted or on foot) form clearly distinct and separate groups of no more than 6 - the Fieldmaster, Hunt Officials and the Covid Compliance Officer should be responsible for making sure these groups remain wholly separate throughout the course of the activities.  
 
To be clear, while is it fine for attendees to spread out, at no point must people gather in groups of more than 6.  

Please let us know if you have any queries.  We will keep you updated as much as we can.  

Kind regards

Latest Autumn Scent training advice

Dear All,
 
Following new guidelines issued by the MFHA, we are delighted to be able to say that subject to keeping within certain Covid secure guidelines, we can begin scent training with UNRESTRICTED numbers as soon as the harvest allows us.
 
In order to do this we have to keep to some fairly strict, but not too difficult to follow guidelines. Essentially it involves making sure we keep social distance of 1m and that we know and record exactly who is out, so that track and trace can happen, should it need to. Hunting is of course always in the spotlight, but is likely to be even more so, as we are seen to be enjoying ourselves again, so we have a duty to hunting as a whole and to ourselves of course to do this as best we can and to be SEEN to be doing it.
 
For mounted followers It will involve a system of booking in before being able to come out. We will try to make this as simple and flexible as possible. Over the next few days we will let you know the exact process we will use, the guidelines/rules that we need to follow and the a summary of how things are likely to work. Basically hunting is a socially distanced sport, so keeping to the rules should be pretty straight forward, but it is crucial that we do. Then there is no reason why we cannot continue and have a great time as we always do. A summary of the guidelines for followers is attached.
