Supporters turn out in force for annual Wymondham Hunt
PUBLISHED: 13:48 26 December 2011
A crowd nearly 1,000 strong packed into Wymondham Market Place this morning to see off the traditional Boxing Day hunt.
Organisers the Dunston Harriers believed the crowd could have been a record turnout, proving the hunt’s popularity with the rural community despite a ban on fox hunting introduced by the Hunting Act in 2005.
Brad Webb, master of the Dunston Harriers, said: “It is a great turnout. You can see how important it is just by looking about today and we are a small percentage of the people attending hunts across the country today.”
