Hot News

Some Frog Checks In

Good to hear news from a former H5ver. He says:

We're still living in Semley near Shaftesbury, Dorset. I'm still hashing with the Blandford Hash almost every week and occasionally with the Wessex and Haunch Of Venison (Salisbury).
Hope you are all well. Still remember your hash weekend at Springhead (just south of Shaftesbury) in 2008!
