Organising Hunting Days for a group of over 30 people

The Government have stated it is against the law for gatherings of more than 30 people to take place in private homes (including gardens and other outdoor spaces) or in a public outdoors space, unless planned by an organisation in compliance with COVID-19 Secure guidance. Businesses can host larger groups provided they take reasonable steps to mitigate the risk of transmission, in line with COVID-19 Secure guidance and including completion of a risk assessment. Gatherings of more than 30 people which are unable to demonstrate compliance with Covid-19 Secure Guidance may result in large fines from the police.
Any pack wishing to organise hunting activities for more than 30 mounted followers, must do so in
accordance with the Covid-19 Secure Guidelines. click here
