Congratulations to all the 2017 Winners!

We were pleased that the rain that looked as though it was going to threaten the rest of the afternoon soon dispersed to leave us with a very pleasant afternoon. Again, it was pleasing to see many residents bring their pet dogs to the show, and the atmosphere in and out of the ring was excellent.

As always, I checked to see, how far people and their dogs had travelled from outside the district to attend the show, they came from Chelmsford, Halstead, Stowmarket, Harlow, Ipswich, Brentwood, Loughton and Braintree, to be with us.

There were 74 dogs entered into the various classes with 185 entries.

A big thank you to our judge Anne Green (Heathergreen) and her Steward.

Yet again the Dog Show has proved its popularity with not only the number of dogs entered but by the many spectators around the ring watching with interest and obviously enjoying their afternoon.

My grateful thanks go to all my very busy team of helpers, to Lesley Shipp, Donna Morphew, Helen McWilliams and Caitlin, where would we be without your generous help; also, a big thank you to those many kind gentlemen of the show committee for their help in putting up the gazebo.
