Donkey Show and Fun Dog Show 2018

The 30th September saw our Donkey Show and Fun Dog Show take place after the event scheduled for June was postponed due to heavy rain causing the show site to flood. Although the In-Hand classes were slightly down on last year the Driving Classes were good with both single and paired donkey turnouts. The Show Drive, where the competitors go out for a two mile road run through the village of Brightwell-cum-Sotwell made for an impressive sight

Tiggy Lavender did very well, coming away with both In-Hand Champion and Reserve Champion awards while Claire Strang won the Driving Championship with Clare Humphries as Reserve Driving Champion. In the Junior Section the Champion award went to Jessica Barnett with Charlotte Porter as Junior Reserve Champion

We would like to thank our In-Hand Judge Mrs. B. Evans and Driving Judge Mr. R. Sims and all the stewards and volunteers for helping to make the show a success.
