Hedging bets

with 2 comments

Warm thanks to Dave King for forwarding this photo of the front page of the latest issue of the Chew Valley & Wrington Vale Gazette.

This week in Chew Valley and Wrington Vale… that is quite some hedge:

‘Champion Hedger Colin Clutterbuck of Stanton Drew with Chairman of the Wrington & Burrington Hedging Society, Dave Keedwell’ is surely one of the finest photo captions ever published.

I wonder if there is a financial prize; it would lend new meaning to the term ‘hedge fund’.

  1. But which one’s which? And doesn’t it look as if the old fella is trying to grab that cup from the young’un’s grasp? “This be moi cup!” “”Tain’t, yer old git! ‘Smine! Gerrof!”

  2. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each class get a money prize and for all other entrants – if you complete your hedge in “a tidy and workmanlike manner” you get paid hedging money.
