Handbook for 2021
Members, don't throw out your 2020 Handbook. As there has been no Society Shows last year (2020). It has been
proposed to use last years Handbook (2020) for the 2021 Show season. Show schedules, Cups and Show regulations
and Notes will remain unchanged for 2021.
We will inform members on a published sheet of any Show schedule amedments.
A copy of the 2020 Handbook can still be found above, in the Handbook 2021 dropdown box. It will be left in place
throughout 2021 season for your reference.
On the day that should have been the crown of the
Society's Summer events. Our show was cancelled by
the restraints of Covid19.
Not wanting to see our members hard work go unseen,
we asked them to submitt photos of what would have
been their entries.
Please enjoy the full glory of our members efforts in the
above Show Gallery.
