An­i­mal con­cerns de­rail show

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Lo­cal studmas­ters met with Hob­biton man­age­ment last Thurs­day to voice con­cerns about a planned fire­works event which was sub­se­quently can­celled.

‘‘It was purely mo­ti­vated by an­i­mal wel­fare con­cerns and pro­tect­ing my liveli­hood; we don’t want to stop peo­ple hav­ing fun,’’ Brad­bury Park studmas­ter Casey Dando said.

He said the re­quest was re­ceived well. Hob­biton gen­eral man­ager Rus­sell Alexan­der de­clined to com­ment.

The pri­vate event, with­out fire­works, went ahead on Fri­day.
