National Show Oswestry 1st Aug Update

The National Border Leicester Show 2015 will be held on Saturday 1 August by kind invitation of Oswestry Show and will be judged by Jim Aiken, Carnew.  It is fitting that John Evans is President of Oswestry Show this year.

Entries have now closed but tickets can still be purchased in advance through Oswestry Show's website -

In addition to what promises to be a very strong show of sheep there will be a display of member's photographs of Border Leicesters at Oswestry Show dating back to before the Second World War and Roy Hughes has offered to display flock books from the 1930s to the 1980s. Breeders interested in persuading Roy to part with any of his flock books after the show can contact him on 01691 652370 or speak to him on the day.
