The association gets requests from various sources around the country to attend events with our stand (and sometimes with sheep as well)and it is impossible to accept all of these. If members feel they could spare the time to help out on the stand, or if we have any spinners or weavers who wish to be contacted about events in their area, please email me at ashtreeflock@gmail.com. These events are a great way to promote your own flock/brand and help increase the profile of the Leicesters generally.
