It has been another busy year with shows and sales and also more.
End on May, a weekend away organised by Frank & Kerry with a lot of help from Alastair Gault and Alison to Ireland. Which 30 clubs members and friends from all ages went. The weekend was compacted with seven great flock visits, Ballymenna Show and the National Stud Farm. Safe to say that this year’s trip was enjoyed by all members, where we saw some outstanding quality sheep and great hospitality shown by our visits. Roll on trip 2016!!
Our annual open day was held on the 4th July with kind invitation of the Ben Vernon and family at Marston Brook Farm. Club members produced a wonderful display of sheep for Judge Mr George Wilkinson, Arkel Flock remarked about the quality of sheep from start to finish. We had a fantastic turn out of family, friends and members, the day was great success with good weather and plenty food and drink. The champion being Ben Vernon, and reserve Charlie Boden and the winning Young Handler Jack Barnes.
The flock competition was held as usual in August, with a good entry in both Open and Newcomers. These were judged by Mr Jeff Aiken, Procters Flock, after which a meal with prize giving was held in the evening of the second day. The Champion was Ben Vernon and Reserve Champion was Andrew Weston.
How the year flies by, with the 20th Annual Show & Sale held on Saturday 19th September at Bakewell Agricultural Centre, Judge was Anne Hughes. The champion was a Ram Lamb from Hayden Fletcher, Damdale Flock and Reserve Champion was a Ewe lamb from Andrew Barnes, Dreway Flock. Thanks to Ron Darlington and Emma Sparkes for organising this year’s club show and sales, and also to all the sponsors. The committee decided to serve teas, coffee and cakes to raise money for the clubs chosen charity we would like to say thanks to who helped and donated on the day.
