Rixton with Glazebrook Community Hall, 27th April 2014. Judge: Mr Ken Bartlett (Dwilencia).


It was an honour to be invited to judge the Dandie Dinmont club Show, for which I thank the officers and committee and also the Exhibitors for a lovely entry, and my two very efficient stewards. I enjoyed my day with you.
