This show was relaunched last year with great success and this year It is going to be held over two days.
We have been allotted a space and the loan of a tent. So we hope to put on a similar display to last year. Our Group attracted a lot of attention by dressing up for part of the day.
We all found a couple of bits of clothes and it really gave our stand an 'added interest' and was great fun.
There will be sheep classes. Usual format, but in addition there will be a Class for people who have not shown often and children to take their Sheep (any Leicester Longwool) into the ring. Practice, walking and standing and how to handle the sheep. There will be experienced people to help. There will be a few Rosettes but it's a fun class to enjoy and show our lovely sheep off to the public.
Another suggestion to have class of sheep for any member to judge. This will be an optional chance for members to practice their skills in judging. This again will more informal to give members the opportunity to 'have a go at judging' to hone their skills before they move to more serious shows (see notice for open day.)
So we would like to bring your sheep, crafts and skills if you can. We particularly need people to provide hospitably in the tent, while the showing is on.
Being the home of the Leicester Longwools and all its history and our hopes for the future please will you all try and make this a special day.
