The East Anglian Oes Club Open Show 14th January 2018
I would like to thank the officers and committee of the East Anglian Oes Club for inviting me to judge at this very well organised show in this fine new hall. Their hard work was clearly recognised by the K.C. representative in attendance, awarding the club a very well deserved ‘Excellent’
I would also like to thank all the exhibitors that turned up, even though I was a substitute for Dave Topliss. I’d like to send Dave my best wishes for a speedy recovery, and wish him well at this time.
