Quiz Night for Derbyshire

We have hosted a very successful 3 way quiz night with Derbyshire & Staffordshire Ayrshire Clubs at the Bentley Brook Inn with a Pie & Pea Supper our Quiz Master for the evening was Steve Briggs along with his friend Alan who enjoys setting the questions along with picture rounds and can you guess the person with 1 clue or 5 clues. 12 teams took part with joint winning teams from Derbyshire Holstein Club and Staffordshire Ayrshire Club even after 2 tie breaking questions could not split them.

Central Counties

Great start to 2020 for Central Counties

We were also able to enjoy a fantastic 70th Anniversary Celebration Lunch in March where a whole host of current and past club members came together to celebrate our club. We had a club history quiz, looked back at old memorabilia of the club and just enjoyed sharing and reminiscing on the fun times shared with the Central Counties club. Thank you to everyone who made the effort to come to this event;  it was so lovely to see everyone come together, especially for such a small club like ours. 


Cornwall Dinner and Dance

On the 30th of January we held our annual club dinner and dance at The Hotel Bristol, Newquay. It was a great event for Dawn Coryn's final function as madam chair, and it was fantastic to be joined by Holstein UK president Bryan Thomas for the evening. 


Shropshire Winter Herd Comp

Here we are well into the New Year and literally learning how to keep our heads above water. As I write, a very large portion of Shropshire is under water and causing untold misery and hardship to farmers and townsfolk alike and we pray for some relief for everyone.
