We are sad to announce the death of Randy Hiscock well known horseman with his team of Sufolks.

 "Really sad to hear about Randy.Have watched him for many years and admired his horsemanship and turnout. Badger beers are local to us so his turnout was always of great interest. Always looked out for his lovely suffolk team at local events. I'm sure he will be missed by those who knew him and many members of the public".
