Midland Game Fair 2018
The last show of 2018 was The Midland Game Fair at Weston Park. Well, what a show it was – for the Branch the footfall was tremendous. One of our exhibits the year was a ‘Forest Walk’ featuring a number of stuffed animals and birds. To this, a competition was run for the younger generation and this was hugely popular with the children and their parents.
