HPS Council

We are very fortunate to have a team of 17 elected Councillors who have great experience in, and knowledge of, the Highland breed.
Many are active breeders, some are judges and all are tremendously supportive.

If you have any matters you would like raised in Council, do not hesitate to get in touch with any of these people.
They are very willing and approachable.
Their email addresses are given to help you and, if you would like telephone numbers, do not hesitate to phone the Society’s Secretary.
