NORTHERN AREA ANNUAL AWARDS PARTY

Now that the showing season is drawing to a close, it’s time to think about the Awards Party

 

This year we are returning to the Millbrook Lodge, in Ballynahinch, following the great feedback we received from you all about this venue last year.

 

The Awards Dinner will take place on Saturday the 25th of November at 7.00pm and we hope to see you all there!

This is also a gentle reminder for anyone who received a cup last year to get the Silvo out and to get names engraved. Committee members from your area will soon be starting to arrange collection
