Resumption of Judge Training
After a gap of more than 3 years the WCPF is now able to resume training judges. This is of great importance as during this time a large number of judges have either retired or unfortunately died.
We will be resuming the judging Seminars in their usual April slot in the WCPF calendar next year. When the event will be held at the Judith Telfer Centre, Exmouth Community College, Gipsy Lane, Exmouth, EX8 3AF on Saturday 22 nd April 2023.
A separate Poster and Application Form accompany this information.
