Mrs Ann Hepworth told us about the hard work and the joys of owning racehorses. The afternoon flew by as we listened to one tale after another.  First being ‘bucket lady’ wielding sponges and mops to prepare show horses, then her love-hate relationship with Chester, who was seen in the local lanes pulling a trap.  Next, rising at 3 o’clock to show in hand at Moreton followed by acquiring and breeding from a racehorse mare.  Richard Johnson won his first race at Warwick on her horse Persian Sword.  She missed watching some wins when she toured with the RSC production of Two Gentlemen of Verona.  She was chaperone to Woolly, the acting dog.  We look forward to hearing of the success of ‘Honey makes Money’

Oxhill cup: sweet pea seeds were distributed.  Judging will be at the September meeting.

Serious Science lectures: Forensic Science; Stargazing; Fantastic Plastic

The County Show schedule was displayed because instead of the Spring Show May’s meeting will be a lunch out.
