Suffolk & Norfolk Cat Club
15th May 2010
Mrs G Denny
The Suffolk & Norfolk Cat Club heralded its 47th championship show with its latest theme ‘Here Comes Summer’ clearly it did for it was a glorious warm day. Many exhibitors and friends took part in the spirit of it, wearing straw flowered hats, Hawaiian shirts and skirts, and garlands. The hall too took on the theme and was suitably attired for the occasion. New innovations were presented for B.I.S. all of which made for an excellent event. The entry was up considerably on last year, in spite of the recession, for which one is extremely grateful to all the exhibitors who supported us. My show manager Mrs Helen Marriot-Power, Sean Farrel and Sue Barratt worked extremely hard to stage the event. I am indebted to them for all the new innovations they put into operation, they had worked the year round to create a attractive day and I cannot thank them enough for introducing another new theme to attract entries. I am very proud of them and admire their keen ability to present it. Chairman S & N.C.C
To my valuable steward Mrs Helen Hardwick who was a tower of strength giving of her all up to the end of the B.I.S. I thank her also for her devotion.
