17th NOVEMBER 2018
Nice friendly Open show run by a new committee wishing good luck to the new Secretary Amy Scales and Treasurer Philomena Nash, thank you for the hospitality and the gift. Some very quality dogs on show and pleased with my entry, a few disappointing absentees but the weather and possibility of kennel cough kept many away. Lovely to work with two very nice stewards in Alexandria Fox and John Lloyd.
