Northampton and District Poultry Club’s first Poultry Club of Great Britain Regional show (15th February 2015), had a good entry of 522 (416 pens of birds.) A new larger venue proved to be popular with everyone as it allowed for a number of trade stands and the addition of new classes such as geese, turkeys, and in what proved to be very popular, some photography classes with 31 entries which were judged by Rupert Stephenson.
Mr Paul Kerfoot judged the Hard Feather Waterfowl and Egg classes, Mr Ian Allonby (pictured above) Judged Juvenile, Soft Feather and Rare Breed Classes with Liz Allonby judging a very strong field of a 122 True Bantams, which contained 48 Seramas with the overall Best Serama trophy going to Maddy Chenery’s bird.
