Many people had given birthday gifts for Rosemary Ayris to receive. As we know unfortunately Rosemary passed away days before her birthday. With the approval of Rosemary’s husband David, immediate family and Helen, they asked if maybe the toiletries gifts could be given to the hospice. However the bulk of the presents to be taken to Northern & Eastern Counties Championship Show that is to be held on the 1st Nov and auctioned. Northern & Eastern committee have agreed to have a sealed bid auction for the presents as a whole, which will be displayed, along with a photo of Rosemary and a book of remembrance to enable exhibitors to sign at the show. The proceeds from the auction will then go to the Hospice.

At the show a Christmas Doggie Hamper will be on offer for auction, also the N&ECPC 2015 calendar will be available to purchase for that extra Christmas gift. There will of course be stalls with that Christmas feel to tempt your wallet out of your bag. So why not save your Christmas gift shopping to the show, job done in one day.

This show is a special day for the Papillon Junior Handlers as it is their awards ceremony celebrating all their hard work during 2014. So enjoy juniors and well done to all the winners.

Well short and sweet this week, next week will be news from Midland Counties. Until then take care and enjoy your showing.
