This Kitchen had been very busy all day. Special thanks must go to Bryan Curtis for organising the catering assisted by Colette Lanceley who also organised the judges lunches. Also thanks to the ring stewards Anne Ankcorn and Carol Collins; Margaret and Brian Johnson on the tombola. There was also a raffle and an auction. Allan Stephenson was in charge of the Whisky Raffle to raise funds for Skyes on Skye 2021 and raised the huge amount of £185.00. Initial sums for the fund raising for the day is looking very good.
