Hunt rides into town
Despite the rain, more than 1,000 people greeted the South Notts Hunt on Tuesday when membersreturned to Newark Market Place for the second consecutive year for their New Year’s Day meet.
After a 20-year ban, the hunt was allowed to return last year after lengthy debate among members of Newark and Sherwood District Council, whichowns the Market Place, and the town council, which issues the invitation.
The ban was imposed by the then Labour-controlled district council. Since then the hunt has used other sites for the meet, mostly at East Stoke and Elston.
