Nicola Chapman and I have been discussing about starting a regional group affiliated to the Belted Galloway Cattle Society, like other regions in the UK.

I have been contacting folks in Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Lincolnshire and Bedfordshire that I know of through friends and the Society on email.

If you would like to be involved or know someone who might, please get in contact.

We thought it might be nice to have an informal meet up at a pub to start the ball rolling and gauge what / how folks would like to see the group move forward. Examples of what other groups do include co-ordinating and promoting local show classes, bull exchanges, farm tours and much more.

Nicola and David Chapman have agreed to host us for the first meeting and preface the gathering over a home cooked supper with a herd walk at Carr Farm for those who would like to come

We are therefore intending to have the herd walk from 3.30pm and then the informal meeting from 6pm.

You are invited to come join us on Saturday 23rd February to:

Carr Farm
Burgh Road
Burgh St Peter
NR34 0AD

01502 677124 or 07841426612

Any questions, please get in touch with Jeremy Perkins on 07768 008880 or
01359 231257

We look forward to meeting with you.
