Our August working test was held at Crathorne, by the very kind permission of Lord and Lady Crathorne. Tests were held for puppy, novice and open.
Mrs Roz Townsend and Mr Howard Brown judged the puppies in the morning and novice in the afternoon, Mr Gordon Cripps and Mr Harry Stangoe judged the open test in the morning and the novice dogs in the afternoon.
At the end of the day each judge was presented with their own engraved goblet to remember the day.
Our thanks go to Joe and Jackie Mescus for all their hard work in cooking and serving lunch and to Bob Kitching for buying in the provisions and providing the means to cook them.
