Cheques can be sent to the Secretary email email@example.com for the bank details to set up a Standing Order.
If any of your contact details have changed please remember to include this information so the member list can be updated, there is also the opportunity to receive your Tamworth Trumpet via email rather than post get in touch if this would suit you.
As you all know the club held its AGM at the Ginger piggery on 15th October.
Congratulations to our new club chairman, Ryan Perry who was elected at
the AGM following votes from the membership. He will be happy to hear your
ideas for improving the club and helping it to work better for all its members.

The AGM also sees the award of the club Points cup. This is given annually to the herd which has accumulated the most points with their pigs at shows across the country throughout the showing season. One day shows to county shows qualify with 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th placings, breed champions & interbreed champions each earning a different points value. This year it was again won by the Valstock Herd, for an amazing 5th year running! Congratulations to Andrew & Emily for their tremendous showing success.
2017 Points Cup Results are
1st Valstock Herd 828
2nd Stoneymoor Herd 228
3rd Fairbank Herd 216
