Johnny Kingdom and his film crew joined a crowd of over 100 for the World Bolving Championships held at Exmoor National Park at the weekend (Sat 18 October 2014) where competitors roared their hearts out hoping to get stags to call back, all to raise money for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust! The annual contest had a junior category for the first time won by Harry Adderley, and the senior title went to Rob Follett.
