Forthcoming Events
We are sorry to say that we have had to cancel the Sybil Lennox memorial open show this year. Unfortunately the venue has new owners and the hire cost has rocketed meaning even a well attended show would be run at a loss. As the aim of this show is to raise money for the ISR&R we feel we have no alternative.
We are very sad for our loyal exhibitors the rescue and of course our judge but we are hoping to be able to run the show in 2024.
If anyone would like to make a donation to the rescue funds please go to and click on the donate button.
Thank you
