This was our society's 27th Open Show and auction
The auctioneer was Steve Spencer, who also brought a good selection of fish, which meant there was a good variety in our 12 Lots.

Our society..
We are a small group of enthusiastic fishkeepers who meet every 3 weeks (on Wednesdays) for informal get-togethers. It's a chance to catch up on news and discuss many aspects of fishkeeping. Anyone new to fishkeeping will be made very welcome, so if you live in the Workington area, please pay us a visit.

As we don't meet as many clubs do, ie. every first Monday of the month etc, our calendar isn't quite so simple, so the best solution is to contact the secretary.

Hope to see some of you in the near future.. John Hetherington.
