This years Bradford show was held at the Bradford Academy in Bradford and as always a good show to finish the showing year.The show had 438 fish on the show bench and had the most lots in the auction they have ever had.
The day started with the presentation of a gold badge for winning 500 first places cards at open shows to Gavin Cowen as Gavin could not be at the show the prize was presented to his son Aiden

Steve Jones was the auctioneer with help from Bradford members and people from other societies helping by doing the running but as you can see not all the things sold were to do with fishkeeping.


Special thanks to the Judges, Trevor Douglas, Mick Price, Trish Jones, Kevin Webb and ‘B’ Trainee Paul Brown doing his first show.

During the afternoon Bradford Aquarists Society made a presentation to their treasurer who was retiring after 40 years. Allan had always wanted a varigatus platy, but had never aquired one, well he has now! The carving was done by Brian Walsh.
