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.
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.
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.
