Ever imagined or made that magical long reach across a field without having to worry about colliding with people or dogs??
Well, you can achieve this regularly by joining the North Hants Buggy Club. A group of enthusiasts have got together and are currently renting a 20 acre field in the Basingstoke area for their own use. This land will effectively be private, with no footpaths or bridle ways across the field, so access is only allowed to members of the club.
This move has been partly prompted by the trend of Kite Buggying and Boarding in public places becoming more restricted due to controls being placed on the sport by Local Councils. Understandably, this is has come about because of various incidents that have happened around the country and widely reported by the media, these incidents are not necessarily linked directly to the sport itself, but we appear to be suffering from some of the consequences. Our field allows us to practise our recreation without interfering with anyone else, or them to interfere with us (dogs, bikes, people etc.)
main reason for the Club is to allow us to go Buggying and Boarding on private
land so that we can be more relaxed when pursuing the sport
