**REGIONAL SPRING SHOW**

We were delighted to welcome Mrs Nancie Hutchinson, Mrs Clare Beebe and Leon Smith as our judges for the day. Entries were down this year but the judges were impressed with the quality of the birds forward.

Congratulations to Tracey Gunning with her stunning Malay which took Best in Show.

It was good to see some new members showing for the first time and several new juniors and juveniles taking their first steps into the fancy. These youngsters are the future and we must give them all the support and encouragement we can.

We must say thank you to everyone who helped with the set-up on Saturday and those who stayed behind to take down. We are very grateful for your help.

A huge thank you to the team in the kitchen who did a brilliant job keeping everyone supplied with refreshments and to those who donated cakes etc.

Also to Elish our raffle ticket seller and to those who donated prizes.

The kitchen and the raffle are essential to the fundraising at our shows to help cover expenses.

We were so pleased to welcome Carl and Ann Faiers who came to visit the show. Carl has been on a very long road of recovery from his illness and it was good to see him again.
