Megan Davies was the driving force behind one of the most successful Clun flocks of the 1950's & 60's at Brobury in Herefordshire. Following an appeal for her whereabouts in the Hereford Times in March 2018, her nearest living relative from nearby Hay came forward with 3 large scrapbooks containing over 300 pictures and reports covering her time there. These have now been scanned and added to the archive. Megan died in 2011 in Southampton but her legacy is now preserved and will live on.
Please contact our secretary Sue Scrivens on 07447017332 or email@example.com for further details

We would be delighted to meet Clun Breeders at the Sheep 2018 Event on Wednesday 18th July . The Clun Stand is no. 17 in Wye Hall, with the sheep provided by Gary Phillips and his Meadowland Flock from Carmarthenshire.
Clun sheep won the A.O.N.B. Championships at 3 of May's County Shows starting with Del Knowles taking the crown at Notts County Show. This was followed by father & son, Mike & Tommy Eckley, winning at the home of the Clun breed in the Shropshire County Show at the beginning of the bank holiday weekend. In was then new breeder, Anna Pennell, who finished off May in style by winning the Northumberland County Show. Well done and thank you to all 3 flocks for keeping the breed in the public eye and turning out great sheep.
Where will this fabulous breed take us next!
