The NRSF's only approved Show and Sale once again takes place at Melton Mowbary. Paper Closing Date : 29th July 2018 On-line Closing Date : Midnight on 5th August 2018. There will be a gathering of North Ronaldsay and Hebridean breeders after the Interbreed Championship - all members welcome for refreshements.

 

 

 

 

ONCE AGAIN NRSF members will be out in force at various events across the UK in 2018. We've now updated our list of shows and events so be sure to click the Events tab above for more details. If you've not shown before but fancy giving it a go, why not make 2018 the year? We're a friendly bunch and there's plenty of help on hand for any novices wishing to get more involved.

 

If you do venture out for the first time, why not write about your experience and share it with other members? Helen Brewis will happily receive copy and photographs for inclusion in The Hemlin.

 

 

 

 

 

NINETEEN MEMBERS celebrated twenty years of the North Ronaldsay Sheep Fellowship at The Greyhound Inn near Stafford on Saturday 21 October. A few last-minute cancellations from some members took the numbers to just under twenty but as a group with fewer than one hundred members, this was a very healthy attendance.

 

People travelled far and wide to this central location and despite the pub losing its meeting room just one week before our event, we were very well looked after, having exclusive use of a newly refurbished lounge area with a roaring wood-burning stove to keep things cosy and comfortable.

 

The formal business of the AGM confirmed new appointments to NRSF Council including Jane Povey and Nick Dowler being formally appointed.

 

Special commemorative 20th anniversary rosettes were commissioned for each member present in the red, yellow and blue of the Orkney flag. These sat upon old copies of The Hemlin which caused much reminiscence and discussion prior to eating.

 

The mood was upbeat, the food was great, the company exceptional and the evening a testament to who we are, where we’ve come from and where the NRSF is heading.
