Support The Boxing Day meet in Lewes High Street
The lively tradition of The Southdown and Eridge Hunt has met at the White Hart in Lewes on Boxing Day seen by thousands who collect in the High Street to enjoy the wonderful spectacle. Since the Hunting Act 2004 the hunt has been trail laying enabling the riders and followers to watch hounds and enjoy the countryside with the grateful permission of the landowners.
This legal sport is being undermined by a minority being against tradition and the countryside showing their prejudice and hate against a section of society
Please sign to endorse your support for the Southdown and Eridge Hunt and to thank Lewes District Council for allowing the closure of the High Street for a short duration on the day so that thousands of townsfolk can appreciate the sight and sounds of this occasion. The town benefits hugely on this occasion. The Riders and hounds will leave the High Street to follow a scent trail on the Downs after the meet.
