CLUB NEWS

From the Autumn 2018 newsletter:

Derbyshire County Sow on  24th June 2018 held at Locko Park  Spondon DE7 4PQ

Harold and Brenda Baker did the Redcap Club proud at the show.   Our entries had pride of place and there were large Redcap posters behind the main entrance desk.   Sadly there was only three members exhibiting. 

Overall there was a good variety of poultry entered and an amazing number of egg entries.    The venue for the show was excellent with hot sunny weather.

The judges for the whole show were Redcap Club members Andrew Wetters and Peter Ward who stoically made their way through the large number of entries despite the sweltering conditions.
