We were delighted to welcome our judges; Marcus Walker and Simon McKean. They had travelled down from Huddersfield to officiate for us. A huge thank you to them as they very kindly took the appointment when our original judges realised they had double booked.
Our judges were impressed with the standard of the birds, but, as with most shows at this time of the year there were many that were not through the moult.
They found their Best in Show in the True Bantam section a very well put down black Pekin belonging to Ian Sissons. It’s good to see Ian back in force! Reserve was a fit Light Sussex bantam from our great supporter John Pummell.
