Llandeilo’s Boxing Day hunt parade has been cancelled due to the new coronavirus restrictions in Wales.

Rural organisation the Countryside Alliance said most of the planned festive trail-hunting meets in Wales had also been called off. Some others will be going ahead but for participants only, but not for spectators.

The decision to cancel many of this year's events was taken after the Welsh Government announced new Covid rules on gatherings.

After Christmas, indoor meet-ups will be limited to a maximum 30 people, and outdoor meet-ups limited to a maximum of 50 people.

The post-Christmas Boxing Day parade of horses and hounds tends to attract large crowds of spectators.

A post on Llandeilo Farmers Hunt Facebook page said: “The parade through town will not be happening due to the recent covid restrictions. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
