70th Anniversary Celebration 1947-2017

The Flint & Denbigh Hunt Branch of the Pony Club is celebrating its 70th Anniversary this year. We would like to invite all members and their families, former members and friends to a celebration on camp field at Cefn, on Sunday 30th July at 6.30pm. There will be refreshments provided. Pay on the gate.

If you have any memorabilia or old photographs, please bring them along: we would love to see them.

The Flint & Denbigh Hunt Branch is unique in the fact that over the 70 years there have only been four District Commissioners. The first was Mrs Hotham, who was DC for 40 years followed by Mrs Michael Griffith, and then Mrs Francis Bradshaw before Mrs Bethan Ll Jones was appointed in 2006. Membership has grown to 320 members at its peak and now stands at 150.

The Branch is based around Denbigh in North Wales, but has a large catchment area. The Branch, due to the large catchment area, is further divided in to four sub-areas: Cefn, Llanasa, Llandyrnog and Llysfaen, and each sub-area has its own committee and organises individual events. All events are open to all members, but are located to allow more localised events within the branch.

The Flint & Denbigh Hunt Branch would like to start working towards having their own indoor facilities in the Ruthin/Denbigh area, looking forward to celebrating their 75th Anniversary with accomplishing this dream. If you think you could help in any way with the project, please let us know ( As a branch Flint and Denbigh Hunt Branch is a part of The Pony Club (Charity number: 1050146) of Great Britain and we share the following:
