Grantham Against Blood Sports
United Kingdom

Sep 13, 2019 — 

At the next meeting of South Kesteven District Council on Thursday September 26th at 13:00, Independent Councillor Virgina Moran will put forward a motion for the Council to completely sever ties with the Belvoir Hunt. The full text of her motion can be read here.

Grantham Against Bloodsports wholeheartedly welcomes & supports this Council motion and we hope you can too, no matter where you live.

Those of you residing locally can contact your representative on South Kesteven District Council and ask them to support the motion. If you’re unsure who your representative is, you can find them by entering your postcode on ‘Write To Them’ [see here].

Don’t forget you can also attend the meeting to express your support for the motion in person. It’s being held at the Council Chamber - South Kesteven House, St. Peter's Hill, Grantham, NG31 6PZ and the agenda will be displayed here in the week before the meeting.

For those living further afield, you can still help! Please write to both Councillor Kelham Cooke [kelham.cooke@southkesteven.gov.uk] & Coucil Chairperson Jacky Smith [jacky.smith@southkesteven.gov.uk] to ask that they support the motion.

Please keep all messages polite and if you need a recap on the Belvoir Hunt here’s a few things to talk to the Council about:

- The Belvoir Hunt recently paid £50,000 in compensation to two wildlife crime investigators from the League Against Cruel Sports [LACS] following a brutal attack by hunt employees and supporters [see here].

- Hunt supporters violently assaulted members of Nottingham Hunt Saboteurs [see here].

- A hunt employee and his son were convicted of GBH, ABH, theft & criminal damage following the attack on LACS investigators referred to above [see here]. 

Many thanks in advance for your help from all of us at Grantham Against Bloodsports. We’ll update everyone as soon as possible  after the meeting.
