I know that a lot of Members and Forum users are, like us Members of The National Trust. This October’s Trust AGM includes a Resolution to ban Trail Hunting on National Trust land, and as such I wanted to highlight this issue and bring it to the attention of any Trust Member who might not be aware.

Its not for me to urge anyone to make up their minds about which way to vote, if Members do choose to vote. There is a lot of information out on the internet on different websites in terms of what trail hunting is, how it is conducted, who controls it, and the myriad of issues surrounding it. Those of you who are Members will have received full details in the AGM literature included with your latest NT magazine, and how to vote either online, or by post. For information, and an easy option to make your vote count, below is the link to enable Members to vote securely. You will need to log in using your NT membership number.

I hope that like us, many will do the research, make an informed decision, and cast their vote accordingly. My post is merely to bring attention to this important issue, I have no intention of debating hunting on here, as I know it can get very emotive, and the last thing I want is this information to go missing. Others may want to discuss it, but please in that case, open a new thread๐Ÿ˜

Thank you for the reminder.  I voted to allow it to continue. It’s a pastime which only  appeals to a minority here but we live and let live with our farming neighbours.

NT has lost its way thanks to woke.

Ttda did ask for no comments in her Opening Post to avoid this type of comment which will spark debate.

Let's hope other users are a bit more receptive to her request eh?

The vote to ban trail hunting was passed - and with a 2 to 1 majority -   " not binding" - but impossible to ignore, surely? ๐Ÿ‘

Such a shame.  Another nail in the coffin for country life.  In my view it only proves that there are more townie NT members that really don't understand the country than there are true country members.  Logical really.

Let’s hope so M. The vote turn out wasn’t huge, but then it seldom is for NT AGM. A message has been sent to the decision makers though. I know a lot of people who wouldn’t join until they banned Stag Hunting on their land years ago.
