SUPPORTERS of the Quantock Staghounds have gone for the full Monty for a new calendar.

The 2008 calendar will feature fine fillies and saucy stags bearing almost their all in aid of the hunt kennels.

Hunt supporter Louise Kennedy said: "I've had a waiting list of people wanting to take their clothes off.

"The hunting fraternity is going through a tough time, and this has certainly raised morale."

The Hunt's 2006 calendar featured scantily clad members, but this year they have doubled the number of models and reduced their clothing.

Louise added: "The calendar has received generous sponsorship from twelve local food producers and suppliers, and we have themed each month with a delicate dish recipe or serving suggestion."

The calendar will be launched at the Quantock Show on Bank Holiday Monday, August 27 at Cothlestone, near Bishops Lydeard.

Calendars can be purchased for £6.50 at the Quantock Show or be ordered from Louise Kennedy, Puddies Meadow, Crowcombe, Taunton, Somerset, TA4 4AE. Enclose a £7.50 cheque made out to Quantock Staghounds Calendar.
