Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and District Canine Society Members’ Limited Open Show 27TH May 2018
Thank you to the committee for the kind invitation to judge the utility breeds and groups, I had a thoroughly enjoyable day. I would like to thank the exhibitors, firstly for entering under me, and who also, after a long wait for a ring, very sportingly moved to an additional ring which was created for us. Special thanks must also go to Sheila Baldwin who very kindly stepped in on the day to steward for me and kept the ring moving with great efficiency.
