Both of our Spaniel Trails this year were judged by Mr Edward Martin and Mr Steve Bates. We would like to thank them for making the journey and giving up a great deal of their time to judge for the club.

We would also like to thank sponsors Tain Pottery, D & FM Sporting and CSJ Specialist canine feeds for their continued support as well as all those who helped out  over the course of the two trials. Without our members and helpers we would be lost so thank you again for all of your help.
