Held on: Saturday 1st June 2019 - at Tarbrax Village Hall       Judge: Mr. Russell F. Jones (Quemerford)

Many thanks to the committee for the invitation to judge this lovely Club Show which made for a very friendly happy day. Judging took place inside the Village Hall as it was quite cold early on the morning of the show. A special thank you has to go to Margaret my steward for keeping the ring up together on the day. I had some lovely Shetland Sheepdogs to judge so thanks to the exhibitors for the entries and sportsmanship on the day. I wish you all well for the future. Once again thank you for a lovely day.
