Central Club

SPRING VISIT
This year Spring visit will be at the invitation of the Horrell family and will take place at Pode Hole Farm on Sunday 10th May. Everyone will be familiar with this nationally acclaimed herd and there is little I can add in terms of background. It is proposed that we meet at 11am for coffee, followed by a walk around the farm paddocks, with some talks on Society led projects, and demonstrations by Roy, after lunch.

Guessing the weight of a pen of bullocks will sort the serious from the amatuers !! We will be joined by members of the Southern Club. Please confirm your attendance direct with Sally by the 3rd May so adequate catering can be confirmed …This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Southern Club will be visiting another of the UK’s longstanding herds on Saturday 9th May. The Barrett family are hosting a day with the Glanariff Herd which is close to Kings Lynn and thus just 45 mins from Podehole. There is an open invitation for Central Club members to join this visit but please notify Luke Anthony a week beforehand …This email address is being protected from spambots.

HERD COMPETITION
This years Herd Competition will be judged by Caroline and Andrew Ivinson from Cumbria. Judging will take place in late August, with further details and entry forms being made available by Graham at the Podehole visit.

AUTUMN VISIT
The Autumn tour will take place over the weekend of the 25th/26th September and will be based at Stockbridge in Hampshire. There will be visits to the Gambledon, Meonhill, Meonside and Hursley herds. Charles & Jemima will confirm full details, and collect £50pp deposits from those wishing to attend, whilst at Podehole. As Hotel accommodation may be limited, the first to pay deposits will take priority. Would those members wishing to express interest in the Autumn tour, but unable to attend the Spring Visit, drop me an email.
