You will then be invited to a training day (compulsory) following which you will be assigned to a senior judge/mentor and be allocated a number of entries the following year. After a successful probationary year, new judges will be invited to judge/assess for a further 4 years. Need to be good time keepers, able to walk reasonable distances (some entries are walked and no transport is involved, be able to judge anywhere in Staffordshire, Shropshire, West Midlands, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire & Gloucestershire.
