Show secretary’s report – Lichfield

Firstly, I’d like to thank all of the judges, stewards and scribes that gave up their precious time, allowing us to run the show. Thank you to our chief steward, Tony Lewis for his time, help and support. A big thank you to “Team Lichfield”; who worked extremely hard to make the event run smoothly and successfully. With extra thanks to the 3 lads who worked tirelessly guiding competitors and campers to the correct parking locations and helped with set-up and breakdown.

On the Monday beforehand, the show going ahead was in question because continuous wet weather and the impact of the County show had caused the Weston Car park ground to become unsuitable. Fortunately, Stafford County showground was able to offer an alternative venue on the other side of the showground. Changing locations meant last minute changes to ring plans, camping and car parking arrangements. The on-site caterers supplied judges’ breakfast sandwiches and superb lunches and opened for competitors also.

Congratulations to Kathy Russell and Sue Monk who won tickets at the show – wishing you the best of luck at Crufts next year.

Thank you to all the competitors who kept the venue clean and tidy, disposing of rubbish as requested.

Wishing you all a successful 2024 and look forward to seeing you in 2025.

Carol Hartland
