Town Clerk steps in over online hunt protest row

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Welshpool Town Clerk Robert Robinson has stepped in to attempt to defuse an online row about councillors taking part in the Boxing Day protest against fox hunting.

Hundreds took to social media to debate the issue after a group of around 15 people including Welshpool Town Councillors Heather Chave ad Nicola Morris demonstrated outside the Town Hall.

Twenty-four hours after the event the row was still raging on Facebook with insults bouncing back and forward between objectors and supporters of Welshpool’s historic annual parade by the Tanatside Hunt.

Mr Robinson first went on line yesterday to point out that the councillors were acting on their own behalf and not in their roles as members of the Town Council.

But with many still voicing opinions today (Wednesday) that the councillors should not have taken part he again responded by saying that anyone who thinks councillors had not behaved as they should would need to write to the Town Council before any investigation would take place.
