Severn Vale Beagle Ball
The Severn Vale Beagles held their inaugural ball, kindly hosted by John Applebly, in a marquee on his property on Hawkesbury Common, near Wootton. Around 100 guests enjoyed a drinks reception, followed by dinner and dancing, with music from the Panama Jazz Band.
Nigel Bell, the master of beagles, who was involved with the Wick and District for 30 years, restarted the pack under the new name, the Severn Vale Beagles in 2013.
