(Affiliated to the National Hamster Council)


Initially entries were slow coming, but we ended up with a respectable turnout of 119 plus 13 non-standard Syrian and 56 plus 6 non-standard Dwarfs for our two judges, Melissa Chamberlain and David Baglin. The 15 pets were ably judged by Rhiannon Lloyd. Thanks to everyone who helped, especially the book and pen stewards and all those who cleared the hall in double quick time!

Congratulations to Wellington Hams who won B.l.S. and B.O.S. Dwarf with two lovely Campbells and to David Baglin whose long Hair Honey Dominant Spot was B.O.S. Syrian. Carol and I were delighted to win B.l.S. with our yellow, and we would like to thank Chris and Pete of Towy Vale for letting us have such a Champ"!
