 UPTON LAD WINS AWARD FOR HIS SHEEP FLEECES

Local lad Jack Bowles has recently received a significant achievement for winning the Specialty Knitwear Fleece Category, open to all wool producers registered with The British Wool Marketing Board.
He is only 11 years old and has won the Stamford Depot Champion award for one of his fleeces, for one that he submitted as part of the British Wool National Fleece Competition.

This is the first time Jack has entered a fleece. and this award is the icing on the cake.
It certainly brought a massive smile to his face and his family along with all his supporters and friends.

This is Jack with his pedigree Southdown Ram Ash.






He's had a first at Lincolnshire show and few other rosettes and seconds at Wragby and Winteringham shows  in various classes this year with his flock.

Well done Jack.
