The Southern BMD Club Championship Show was held on 11th June inside the Market Hall
at Lockmeadow, Maidstone, Kent.  I haven't been able to access the class results so I don't have
any entry figures etc. but the judge was all-rounder Kevin Young.

Club secretary Trish Goodyear kindly emailed the names of the principal winners to me.

My thanks to Rebecca King for permitting me to reproduce her photographs of some of the winners.

Lane, Beare Green, near Dorking, Surrey. RH5 4RW. 

This event was originally planned as a weekend event as in previous years but this year the carting
parades, fun classes, obedience, junior handling and Good Citizens Awards will only be held on
the Saturday.  Camping will still be available fromThursday to Monday and the carters will still run
their activities throughout the weekend. The clubhouse at Henfold Lakes has also been rebuilt so the
facilities at the venue will be better than in previous years.
