26th February 2017 - Annual General Meeting
Thank you to all who attended our AGM, it was a well-attended day, with lots of fabulous cake! We would like to welcome Chris and Polly to the committee, I’m sure they can’t wait to get started! Many thanks as always to Brian Jones, who always gives a wonderful talk on all aspects of the Rescue and Rehousing scheme. It is wonderful to hear some heart-warming stories come from sometimes desperate situations, and to know that our breed is in safe hands. Finally we must thank Sue Knight for a very informative talk on the legalities of owning a dog.
23rd April 2017 - Gundog Training Day
An enjoyable day was had by all, excellent training from Paul and Maddie Burr, whom we must thank for such an insightful and helpful day. I think all of the dogs enjoyed themselves, and hopefully it helped them in their training. Thank you to all who supported the day, especially Jacquie Thomas who organised everything and ensured the smooth running. Photos can be found on our Facebook page, and by following the links below.
