Lanarkshire CTA Show Secretary’s report

As this was my first year as show secretary I knew I had big boots to fill, our previous show secretary Eilleen Murphy had decided to retire from being our show secretary after 40 odd years, she done an amazing job as show secretary and she is still helping me now.

A massive big thanks to all of the judges, stewards and stay stewards who helped us out today without your help there would be no show, thanks again.

 

Well what can I say about our helpers today well quite a lot actually, our club members are all amazing they go the extra mile to help out, from the members that set up the rings, car parking, catering, stay stewards and everything else they helped out with running our show you are brilliant, can you do it again next year lol.

Our weather this year was soso a wee bit chilly with some rain so next year we have put an order in for sunshine fingers crossed the big man helps us out ?.

So thanks again for everyone that helped us run this fabulous show and we hope to see you all next year.
