This was a most delightful show held in a lovely setting. The generous display of fantastic trophies was spectacular and would equal anywhere in the world.
One of the special moments was when the President, Mr. Brian Cummins, appeared. Brian has been seriously ill for some time and he must have made a great effort to be with us in his wheelchair. He was so cheerful and it truly warmed everyone’s hearts.
Many thanks to the Secretary and Committee and my very efficient Steward Phillipa for their hard work at this well organised show. Also thanks to the very sporting exhibitors and their beautifully top quality dogs.
