Demo at the Barlow Hunt Terrier, Lurcher and Family Dog Show

The Barlow Hunt are holding a terrier, lurcher and family dog show at their kennels on the 8th August. Lets remind them that the general public overwhelmingly opposes the hunting of foxes, and that when they are hosting events to raise money for the hunt we will be there.
 
Location: The Kennels, Horsleygate Road, Dronfield, S18 7WE
 
Meet at Owler Bar roundabout by the Peacock Pub at 10am. We will then split into two groups, with one group staying at the roundabout and the other group heading to the kennels.
 
Although we will be bringing some banners and fox costumes with us, we encourage you to get creative and bring your own sign.
 
****UPDATE****
– The always supportive and award winning Veggies will be joining us, providing not-for-profit vegan food and drinks (https://www.facebook.com/Veggiescatering)
– Two piece punk band Glitchers will be playing live (https://www.facebook.com/glitchersband)

Wild Peak / Derbyshire Refugee Solidarity Fundraiser

Wild Peak were to have a Fundraiser to raise money to support the work of Derbyshire Refugee Solidarity (DRS).

They say:

As you’ve probably guessed we have decided to cancel the Wild Peak fundraiser which was meant to be happening on 11th-12th July and was going to be raising money for Derbyshire Refugee Solidarity.

We’ve been in touch with DRS and they are all surviving, but there are definitely worries about things like how there will be enough tents in Calais this year for refugees to sleep in. Most of the tents that get donated usually come from festival leftovers that groups like DRS usually collect, and with no festivals happening there could well be a shortage of sleeping spaces for those on the streets of France this Autumn and Winter.

So if you were intending to come to the fundraiser for DRS, and would have bought some cake, samosas, pimms and beer, then check out another way to donate to help show solidarity to some of those who will be struggling in the wake of all this, please instead donate to DRS.

Cheers folks – missing you all and hoping it won’t be too long before we can meet in the field again, love the Wild Peak Crew x
