Our Annual Dinner took place on Friday 26th January 2017. The Dinner was, once again, very well attended. Our thanks must go to Jackie and her team at The Wensleyale Pantry, Hawes for providing and excellent dinner - as always! Mr Micheal Clarke was our after dinner speaker, who entertained us with stories of his time as a Member of Parliament.
The Annual Draw raised £690 and the Raffle & Cake Auction raised £130 for Association Funds. The association trophies were awarded to their worthy winners!
The "Ciba Geigy" Trophy, for the most points won in Teeswater show classes in 2017, was awarded to Giles & Keiran Horner.
The John Le Cornu Trophy, for the most points won by Teeswaters in Any Other Breed classes, was awarded to Gilly Storer.
The Chairman's Shield, for the member who has made the most effort to promote the breed in 2017, was awarded to Ruth Dawson.
The Teeswater Sheep Breeders' Association was formed in 1949 with the aim to encourage and improve the breeding of Teeswater Sheep, to maintain their purity and particularly to establish the supremacy of Teeswater rams for crossing with hill sheep of other breeds for the production of half-bred lambs, know as the Masham.
