Thank you to the Chairman, Hon Secretary and Committee for inviting me to judge at this prestigious show. It was a superb venue, very clean with large rings. My thanks also to my two hard working stewards, Vicky and Grace who looked after me perfectly. Not forgetting the exhibitors for bringing their charges under me, of which i had a fantastic entry.
