pic2Club Visit to the Dinmore Herd 

30 members enjoyed a wonderful day at Dinmore Estate, Herefordshire on Sunday 23rd June.  We all made our own way there and were welcomed by Bart and Mary.  Bart took us around the Pedigree and commercial cattle …………….and don’t forget the donkey, who was a true asset to them when halter breaking their cattle!  We followed on to see the Equestrian side………..magnificant to see.

Mary then kindly provided us all with lovely tea & cakes.
