Re: Visit to East Pennine Koi Club 19th June 2011

Must admit a cracking day out, some lovely koi and ponds seen. Also great hospitality by the folks from East Pennine, in fact there was more of them going round the ponds than us!!!!

Re: Grow and Show Showa's

Mitch,

Must admit they were great quality, to get so many that were in people's selection was pretty good. I would think people will be very pleased as these koi develop over the coming years.
