My Apologies for being late with this critic. I have had a bad few weeks since judging this show. Caravan was nearly wrote of on m6 after a van driver falling asleep. Week spent on the phone to insurers . Given a 6 berth brand new motorhome to use till my caravan is returned after a new back and side fitted . while judging in Latvia came home to find that my home and been broke into for the keys for the motorhome nothing stolen the keys to car and motorhome in the safe which they did not find as a consequence to all this going on I have ended up with stress and vertigo.so sorry again for the delay. My thanks to the committee for the inviation and exhibitors for there very welcome entries. And thanks to my co judges for sending some good dogs in for Best in Show.
