Welcome to the College Valley and North Northumberland Hunt (CVNNH) website. Meeting twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays from September to early March, the CVNNH is a celebrated pack of foxhounds which was formed in 1982 when the College Valley Hunt amalgamated with the North Northumberland Hunt.
We hunt within the laws of both England and Scotland across an area which stretches from Holy Island in the very North East of Northumberland, taking in the Cheviot Hills, up to the Bowmont Valley and Hownam in the Scottish Borders.
Our hunting country is diverse and rural, encompassing rolling grass and woodland in the low country as well as the fabulous white grass of the hills. We have excellent relationships with local farmers and businesses while we also endeavour to provide a focus for local community activities and fund raising.
We are particularly pleased to welcome Newcomers to hunting who can come out with us for the first time by arrangement for no charge.
We welcome followers throughout the season on horses, in cars or on foot, although we do ask that anyone new wishing to join us obtains permission from the Hunt Secretary in advance.
Point to Point
SADLY THE POINT TO POINT HAS HAD TO BE CANCELLED DUE TO A WATERLOGGED COURSE. OUR APOLOGIES TO ALL.
This year’s point-to-point will be held at Ratcheugh, Alnwick on 5th March 2017.
The course at Ratcheugh Farm, Alnwick is located 3 miles north east of Alnwick, easily accessible off the A1 and signposted from there. For those using sat nav the postcode is NE66 3AE
Point-to-Point racing takes place because an army of volunteers attend on the day to assist in so many different ways. A successful meeting depends entirely on attendance and sponsorship. Anyone wishing to be involved or interested in sponsorship should contact Simon Orpwood on 01890 850266/e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
More information on point-to-pointing can be found on the official website www.pointtopoint.co.uk.
