** Kent County Show 2013 **
First and foremost we would like to thank everyone from judges and sponsors to helpers for all the support given at the show. Many of you know the huge amount of work involved staging this event and once again with teamwork it all came together very well. So well in fact that Kent Poultry Club were awarded Best Agricultural Trade Stand 2013. Quite an honour for our first time !!
Special thanks Kent County Agricultural Society who have been supporting the club with the marquee and facilities for the last three years; we are happy to be providing them with a poultry section like no other.
To those of you that gave their time THANK YOU, you know who you are !! we cannot name everyone in this newsletter and rather than miss someone out please accept this as our gratitude for your help and kindness.
Thanks must also go to the exhibitors on all three days who kept the faith after the conditions of last year. Whilst entries for the Poultry show on Saturday and Egg show on Sunday were a little down on last year the standard of all was very high.
