All set for new year’s hunt

Have your say

RIDERS and hounds will gather in Playclose Park, Melton at 11am on Monday to take part in the traditional and historic New Year’s Day Hunt.

The Qourn Hunt, who have been invited to Melton by the town estate, will travel up Nottingham Road and then out into open countryside, riding towards Saxelbye.

Members of the public are welcome to come and meet the hounds and riders, prior to their departure for the open countryside.

Peter Morritt, hunt secretary, said: “Fingers crossed the milder weather will allow lots of riders to take part.”
