Fox Hunting in Woldingham

I forgot to mention that earlier this month I came across this fox hunt, presumably a mock fox hunt since fox hunting is banned in this country.  I am not sure whether these people, horses and dogs are from the Old Surrey, Burstow and West Kent hunting group (link to BBC article about one of their hunts since the ban), or whether it they are from the Warlingham & District Horse Club (link to their website with information on mock hunts).

My current MP, Sam Gyimah, is on record as saying that he would be in favour of repealing the ban.  I even attended a public meeting during the 2010 election campaign where he stated this. I was therefore surprised to see a letter from him to another constituent, in which he claims to still be open to representations on the matter.  Surely politicians are wary of saying different things to different people in the internet age?

I would be in favour of retaining the current ban, and these mock hunters were a friendly bunch who seemed to be capable of thoroughly enjoying themselves without a real fox.
