* Box Show & Talk *
The September Box Show was held at a new venue this year, Brogdale Collections near Faversham. The management very kindly offered us the use of their meeting rooms for the event and this proved very popular. Brogdale Collections are a charity based at Brogdale Farm to keep the National Fruit Collection open to the public through tours, seasonal events and festivals. There is also a thriving courtyard with shops and small businesses, many of which sell local fresh produce.
Our judge for the day was Mr Steve Fuller from Sussex, Steve is a highly respected breeder and judge and has helped and supported the club for many years. There were 36 birds entered and about the same number of people present, many of who were new to the club which was very pleasing to see.
Steve explained to the exhibitors the characteristics he would be looking for in each breed and pointed out the faults and qualities of each bird in detail.
