The WSSC held their first show of the year at the new venue in Corley Village, just outside of Coventry.
Alison Findlay had a huge variety of new items for people to buy from the Supplies stand and has invested in a card reader to allow people to buy without needing cash on them, something to be aware of for those attending Crufts in March.
There was also a goodly selection of impressive prizes in the raffle, I was particularly chuffed to win a rucksack complete with WSS logo although the addition of a bottle of Champagne wrapped with it certainly made the prize even better.
Jennifer Millard was the judge for the main classes, her morning winners were BD Jane Graham’s Sh Ch Taimere’s Twister Round Nyliram JW ShCM, RBD Sharon Barkley’s Sh Ch Cherryheath’s Mr Mischief JW ShCm, BVD Jenna Cocking & Pete Barnaby’s Bushwacker Thriller and BPD Andrew Morgan & David Schofield’s Cwsscwyn Who Knew.
During the lunch break Janet Dyer judged the 3 Specials classes, her winners being Special J D/B – Jane Graham’s Don’s Statement To Nyliram JW, Special PG D/B Alan Brown’s Bowdonia Ozzie & Special O D/B Jane’s Sh Ch Taimere’s Twister Round Nyliram JW ShCM.
