Club Annual Exhibition Report 2017

The Club’s annual exhibiton was once again held at Wren Spinney School. Early indications suggest a slightly increased footfall.

The show is the last to be “exhibition-managed” by Carl Ward, who has decided to step down. On behalf of all members and visitors, we would like to thank Carl for his sterling efforts.

The Public “Best-in-Show”  award was well supported and produced a clear winner with Re-United Biscuits taking the honours! The layout is the work of Mike Biash and son, Robin, pictured below,
