Judge's Critique

Judge :     Mr D Robbins

Many sincere thanks to my very efficient stewards who are often under rated and who we couldn’t do without. They were excellent, making my job very much easier. Many thanks also to the exhibitors for giving me the pleasure of handling some lovely exhibits.
