Message from Amanda Denver, secretary
May I take this opportunity of wishing everyone a happy New Year. On behalf of the Association, I would like to thank you very much for your support over the last twelve months. The Flock Book will be with you very soon – it may be available to collect on the night of the Rough Diamonds Social Evening. The event will be held in the Café Ambio, Junction 36 Crooklands Livestock Auction on Friday 25th January 2019 at 7.30pm - tickets cost £10 each. If anyone would prefer a vegetarian option or have any other dietary needs, please could you let me know. This year the Charity chosen is the Great North Air Ambulance - all money raised will be split equally between the Charity and the RFSBA. It would be nice to see as many members as possible and please bring along family and friends – just let me know numbers for catering purposes either by giving me a ring or complete and return the slip below. Please you could let me know by 21st January at the very latest. The Stock Judging Competition will be running again and Ian Grisedale has very kindly offered to supply four hoggs for judging again this year. We will also have the usual entertainment and money raising events so please could you bring along any items for the auction or raffle. Please note there will be the sale of In-lamb Rough Fell ewes on Saturday 26th January, with classes for Ewes, Gimmer Shearlings & Gimmer Hoggs.
