Brynamman Poultry Show. I

Detailed Lists, Results and Guides

Brynamman Poultry Show. I The Brynamman Fanciers' Association deserve to be heartily congratulated on the fine success of their endeavours this year again in promoting a poultry show worthy of the reputation of the feathered world events. A previous effort of theirs yielded a surplus of £ 60, which grand sum was handed over to the Soldiers' and Sailors Welfare Society. The proceeds of last Thursday's exhibition are to be devoted to- 'wards erecting a memoria,l to the fallen heroes of Brynamman. The object deserved the splendid support accorded to the enthu- siastic and painstaking committee, which spared neither time, energy or money in making the affair such an unqualified suc- cess. It was held at the Church Hall, which building, though spacious, proved much too small to accommodate the record number of exhibits on show and the great numbers of sightseers and competitors. The hall was kindly lent for the occasion. This fact deserves special mention. The show was opened by Mr. J. Ernest Lewis, manager, Glynbeudy Works, and Mr. Harold Rees, Albion House. Appended is the list of prize-winners selected by the judge of this section, Mr. J. T. Morris, Mountain Ash:- POULTRY. I Classes I and 2.-Game, any variety, cock or hen: I and special, T.
