The Northern Hamster Club

(Affiliated to the National Hamster Council)


Nearly 200 hamsters kept our judges Sid Skidmore and Simon Downing busy through the day assisted by Mick Turnidge, Pat Richardson, Melissa Chamberlain and somebody called Terry, I can't think who that could be. Things got a bit hectic when Blue Peter were doing their filming. A big thank you to Joanne Hampshire for judging the pets and to Mathew Dyson who played along with the joke for Blue Peter as you will all have seen be now I'm sure. Thanks to Valerie Dyson for her help on the day it was much needed, and a very big thank you to Julie Glover who brought me to the show.If it was not for Julie I would be unable to attend quite a few shows, a million thanks Julie.

Finally congratulations to our winners - Dwarf - Wellington Hams, Hamper Hams, Matthew Richardson and Victoria Ross and Matthew again with Wellington Hams for the Syrians and B.I.S. to that Terry person again. Hope you like your turtle Terry.

Sue Kilburn.
