Judge : Mrs Ann Pickburn
This critique reflects the judge's opinion
based on what they saw on the day of the show.

Thank you for my entry and how nice it was to hear applause for the class winners. I was delighted to see several former exhibitors from the past sat watching the judging. Thank you for your support. I was pleased with the quality of the entry, several classes were close decisions, the grass held some very interesting smells which resulted in several exhibits being distracted on the move.
