SHOW CUPS AND TROPHIES
This is an appeal
for anyone who has ever won a SWA cup or trophy to look and see if they have
still got it, we are missing a few cups and in spite of the signed receipts
accepting full responsibility whilst in their care, people deny still
having them. Before going to the expense of replacing these
missing cups, we would ask everyone to check extra carefully. If
you find you do have one of the SWA’s cups please
return it to a committee member or the relevant show secretary.
We intend to start a list of people who
have not returned cups and they will not be allowed to take any in the future
and we may publish in the Spring Newsletter a list of those cups for which we
have receipts but which the people who signed for them deny having.
