This is our second March meeting, as there will not be a meeting in April. The last show went very well with all stalls booked and lots of visitors. Now we are looking forward to our next one in November. Tonight is our Connoisseurs £1 a ticket raffle. Bryan and Neil bought all the prizes from stallholders at the show.
