** Autumn Show 2014 **
19th October 2014
Our Autumn show held at Boughton-under-Blean was as ever a busy day. We were delighted to welcome our judges Mr Derick Hoyland, Mrs Angela Dupont and Mr Michael Hatcher as our judges for the day.
There was a good entry of 274 birds and 84 plates of eggs. Thank you to all our exhibitors for supporting the show despite the road closures!
Thanks must also go to those members who gave up their time to help with the set up on Saturday and those who helped take down and helped in any way on show day. We are very grateful to you all. Also a huge thank you to everyone who helped in the kitchen at short notice. We had many new members and guests on the day which is always pleasing.
Before prize-giving our judge Derick Hoyland asked all those present to show their appreciation to Derrick Elvey who has decided to give up his beloved Belgians after 40 years. Derrick is a Life Member of the club and spent many years on Committee and was Show Manager/Show Secretary amongst his many other duties. He has been a great support to the club and a true poultryman and fancier. We wish you well Derrick and hope you continue to enjoy all your other hobbies.
