Challenge has the pizzazz


Once again English Groomers Group (EGG) proved their ability to organise a top-notch event with the Challenge over the weekend.

Trade stands, seminars and ‘Discover Grooming’ breed stands as well as the competitions ensured there was plenty to entertain and inform the visitors. And the Creative Challenge proved just how incredibly imaginative some groomers can be!
