York Show and Sale - THIS WEEKEND
A table has been reserved at The Bay Horse, Merton on Friday 4th October for our usual after show meal - it's a great opportunity to catch up and discuss the days event.
The menu is £12 for a choice of:
Steak & Ale Pie, Gammon Steak, Chicken or Battered Haddock, all served with chips and veg. A vegetarian option will be available on the night.
Puds from the board, all at the single price of £4.50 – but you’d need to be seriously in training to manage one!!
If you would like to join us, please e-mail Eric Medway with numbers and choices by Tuesday 01 October.

Some weeks ago you would have received the forms to renew your membership of HSS. This is due by 31 October. Renewals after this date are treated as re-joining and so incur an additional joining fee.
Please also remember to complete the Annual Flock Return – this is really helpful in letting us know how many Hebridean sheep are actually being used for pedigree breeding and cross breeding.
