Pastoral Group,

Judge: Colin Richardson

I would like to thank the Officers & Committee of the Society for inviting me to officiate at their well-run open show which took place over 2 days at the Culm Valley Sports Centre Cullompton. My thanks to the exhibitors for allowing me to examine their dogs, the majority of which were present in a clean and well muscled condition. Having been involved with the running of shows for over 35 years, I know too well the hard work and dedication put in by the organisers.
