Barry Dutton awarded The Lintran Trophy.

Every Kennel Club Registered Society has to hold an Annual General Meeting where all the 
boring stuff like approving the accounts and re-electing the Committee takes place. AGM's are never that popular and rarely attract many members. I heard of one recently where four people turned up!! We have just had ours and 28 members and friends joined us. 
Every year at our AGM we award the Lintran Trophy given to us in 1999 by Frank Hopkins 
of Lintran Dog Boxes and it is awarded to the member who, in the opinion of the Committee,
goes above and beyond when it comes to helping at our Tests and Trials and other work behind 
the scenes. As most of you know, we are always well supported which helps us run decent events
for our members. The list of people we could give The Lintran Trophy to is endless and we thank them all for their continual help and support. This year we awarded it to Barry Dutton. 
Barry is one of life's givers and is always ready to help out, not just at almost every Test and Trial but also at Committee level where he works tirelessly to help run the Club. 
Thanks Barry.
