Show - Saturday 4th July
were very lucky with the weather on Saturday and everyone
was able to enjoy the afternoon in glorious sunshine.
It was lovely to see so many people turn out in good
haymaking weather! We offer our thanks to Mr & Mrs
Brian Turner for allowing their adjacent field to be
used for parking which was a great asset.
done and thanks to Masters George and Lizzie for hosting
the show, with special thanks to Stephen for making
an excellent job of showing hounds and to Steve Smith
for his much appreciated help. Hounds looked well and
happy and obviously enjoyed the party too - with only
one Harrier showing off their skill of jumping for freedom!
We offer our grateful thanks to all the kind people
who donated food, and particularly the ladies who stepped
in to help set it out. Chanelle and helpers had worked
hard to get everything laid out in preparation for tea
before having to fly off to her granddaughters birthday
party! She was back later though and was a true professional
with the tea pot! There was a magnificent spread and
everyone enjoyed a delicious, traditional afternoon
tea and we hope everyone enjoyed it.
Barbara was 'selling' Hound Sponsorship and did a remarkable
job (despite having one eye on the showing - where her
puppies did very well, so our thanks for doing the job
and congratulations to her too!) There are just a few
hounds left to be sponsored if anyone is interested?
Please ring Barbara on 01643 705924.
Well done also to Liz Lionet for being the only person
to place the hounds in the correct order of the Coloured
Ribbons judging competition - thanks to our two lady
judges Ms Felicita Busby MFH and Mrs Eve Webber for
selecting these hounds.
For a change we held a barbecue after the Puppy Show
and thanks to our Chairman, Brian Palmer for cooking
the burgers. Thanks also to George Winter who had a
steady flow of custom throughout the afternoon and into
the evening running the bar - his skill in mixing Pimms
is becoming legendary!
We hope you all enjoyed yourselves!
