Judge Leanne Challands (Annilann)
I’d like to that the Coventry cocker spaniel club for inviting me to judge the special awards at this show. I really enjoyed judging these classes and was very happy with my final 3 class winners. The committee and my stewards looked after me very well and the food was lovely. Well done on a lovely show with a brilliant atmosphere.
