**The Regional Spring Show**

 February 9th 2014

 There were 407 bird entries and 120 plates of eggs.

We were honoured to have Mr Chris Parker, Mr Ian Allonby, Mrs L Allonby, Mr D Elvey and Mr T Hannam as our judges for the day.

 Exhibitors continue to flock from far and wide to compete at our shows. The standard of the birds penned was excellent.

 It was heartening to have such a good entry from our young members and there many new members are dipping their toes in the water for the first time!

 Well done to you all.

 Our wonderful catering staff kept everyone happy with an excellent variety of refreshments.

Thank you to everyone who continues to support our shows and a huge thank you to those who responded to the plea for help with setting up on the day before and to the great band of helpers that stayed to take down after the show.

Spring Regional Show

Judge’s report

It was an honour and a privilege to judge the Kent Poultry Club Regional Spring Show. I have had a long
association with the Club and it was good to be back albeit for one day. After a long trek south from Crosby Garrett with my husband Ian and Chris Parker. a journey of some 356 miles, we were greeted with a really warm welcome, several people saying ‘what’s it like to be home?’

Congratulations goes to Robin Creighton who had Show Champion with a beautiful Silver Sebright pullet. Reserve Champion going to Nobby Ward, with a very graceful, well balanced Blue German Langshan cockerel.
Derrick Elvey was the egg judge, Derrick and I go back a long way and it was lovely to spend some time with him over lunch. His Best Eggs going to Browning & Wilsons Plate of 3 brown eggs.

We were impressed with the venue and overall layout of the show. It was well run and organised.
The standard  of birds were very high, well presented with many good birds being cardless.
Lunch was superb, grateful thanks must go to the catering staff.
After many ups and downs over the years the Club now appears to be going from strength to strength with a bright future. Well done to such a dedicated team.
