TRANS-PENNINE ORIENTAL & SIAMESE CAT CLUB SANCTION SHOW 6 12 08I was delighted to be back at the Transpennine show again this year & thank Joan, Pam & Barry for the invitation & the warm & friendly welcome which is a hallmark of this show.We were in new surroundings this year,but the warm festive atmosphere was just as it always has been and there was a good entry of quality cats,which augers well for the club’s first Championship Show next year.I hope it goes from strength to strength – this hardworking committee deserve success! Heather Gazzard stewarded for me,as she has done for several years and we had a really enjoyable day together.Thank you,Heather,I’m looking forward to next year already!
