BEATING THE BOUNDS

Waiting to start the Tradition of Beating the Bounds

On Sunday13th May 2012 The Civic Society led a group of local residents, battling some very strong winds, in our annual 'Beating  the Bounds' on Spring Common, Huntingdon.  This tradition reinforces our campaigns to keep our common land free for the people of Huntingdon who have a  right to "green spaces" air and exercise.  This Ceremony was started over 25 years a go by the late June Cruise and  Brian Smith who with Mr John Hartsthorne and Lord  Renton , our former MP, took on developers who trheatened our open spaces.
