We all look forward to welcoming you to watch the judge’s videos of the class judging which will be recorded on 28th April 2022 & the ‘live’ event on Friday 13th May, hosted by Nigel Barden.
However, before we enjoy the event, we need to ensure that we take safe delivery of your precious cheese samples, ready to collate into the judging boxes. The collaboration will be kindly done by Sharphams Dairy & Food in Community in Devon.
