** AUTUMN VOUCHER SHOW REPORT **
With summer now just a memory, it is a challenge to find birds that are fit enough to show, with most currently in various stages of moult! Entries were down on previous years, but we still managed to have 218 birds and 40 plates of eggs presented for James Firth, Virgil Goodchild and Nicki Firth to judge. Congratulations to Jane Freeman, who they awarded Best in Show for her beautiful black Croad Langshan pullet.
A huge thank you to not only our kitchen team, which did an amazing job with all the catering and keeping up with the butty demands, but also to the members and exhibitors that helped with the setting up and taking down of the show – many hands really do make light work!
We would also like to thank our show sponsors: The Butcher of Brogdale for all the bacon and meat, and Marriages for Championship Row prizes.
Finally, thank you all for continuing to exhibit and support the Kent Poultry Club and we hope you all enjoyed yourselves!
