Dear Member

ROYAL WELSH SHOW 2011

First of all may we congratulate Mr Huw Evans, Alltgoch on his success at the Show when his rams took the Male, Reserve Male and Overall Champion of the Llanwenog Section. Congratulations also to Gareth Evans from Parcyrhos whose ewe won the Female Champion and Mr & Mrs A Williams, Pentre Flock on winning Reserve Female Champion.

Thank you to all members that attended, we are very lucky to have such a massive stage on which to publicise our breed and congratulations to all our members who competed.

Congratulations to Heledd Jenkins who won the prestigious Young Handler competition.

Congratulations to all members that have been present at various local shows, especially Mrs Margaret Brain, Whiteparish Flock, at the New Forest Show for winning 3 out of the 8 classes entered and 2nd in the remaining. The day was topped off with her ewe lamb winning the reserve champion.
