** Kent County Show 2012 **
We staged our three day Exhibition, Poultry Show and Open Egg Show at Kent County Show once again this year and to those who took part, either as helpers or exhibitors thank you doesn’t begin to express our gratitude ! After all, what is life without a little challenge !
To the members and general public who braved the “Summer” weather to visit our marquee, thank you for your wonderful comments, they certainly made all the hard work worthwhile.
A big thank you must go to Kent County Agricultural Society for their support and backing, allowing us to put on the kind of Poultry Section that we had long envisaged. The K.C.A.S. faced a mammoth task to keep the Show going under very difficult circumstances.
Thanks must also go to all the Sponsors and Judges and indeed everyone involved. There are so many it is impossible to name them all but you know who you are !!
We were honoured to have Adam Henson visit our marquee on Saturday .His comments on the Display and Show were music to our ears, and gave our flagging bodies the boost we needed !
A report could never do justice to what proved to be an amazing show so do take a look at the photos.
