Coun Ray Wootten says…
The silent majority turned out in their hundreds today to greet the Belvoir Hunt meet which have been meeting in Grantham for 130 years.
The turnout was one of the biggest seen in Grantham despite meeting at a new location in Stonebridge Road.
Although there were a few protesters, their voice was drowned out by those who were supporting the meet.
Many who turned out were critical that the Mayor was not there to greet the Hunt Master and present the traditional stirrup cup.
