NEFRA Spring Working Test 2019


Belvoir Castle

Many thanks to all who came along to our spring working test, we had a fabulous entry from all over the country (and beyond)!

The Belvoir Estate near Grantham proved to be a wonderful venue and we thank our kind hosts for allowing us to visit. I am sure you will agree a lovely ground for a test.

The tests themselves were very well thought out and set by our panel judge Dan Higgs. Our other judges were Sharon Kitson, Pat Bell and Elaine Whittaker who got through the 49 entries in good time.

A vote of thanks was given by Gill Awty, who won the open test, to thank everyone who answered our appeal for help, we haven’t ever had quite so many willing volunteers and this was definitely appreciated!

A big thank you is also due to Malcolm Awty as chief steward who did a lot of work on the day to keep things running smoothly.
