December News!

Annual General Meeting, on 6th January, 2020, at the ‘Inn on The Green’, Coddington.

Refreshments from 7:00 - Meeting starts at 7:30.

We start back Training on 13th January at the Showground, but in a new place – the John Eastwood Building

Turn left when you come in the main gate and it is the set of low buildings on your right. You can park on the front of them. The really good news is that this building is not as much in use by other events as our current one so we will not lose as many dates. For example, we will have most of the training days in July and only lose one session in August! This is great news.

Looking forward to seeing lots of you back in the new year.

It's Party Time!!

STAY at home today and save all your energy (and money) for our
Christmas Party
on Monday 2nd December, at 6:00 pm.

It won’t cost you anything – well apart from providing, if you can,
a dessert, a raffle prize and some loose change for a raffle ticket!

You will get some great doggy company (and people),  
 FREE FOOD, silly but fun games, prizes and possibly a trophy. You also get the chance to dress up!

Warning : Photos of you and your dog probably making idiots of yourselves may be published in the local press

An apology - well, lots of apologies . . .

From the newsletter editor:

"A thousand apologies. September might have arrived but I'm mentally still in the middle of August!!! I have not done our monthly newsletter yet. I will try and get it done over the next couple of days and send it to those on my email list. Most important thing to remember is we are back training at the showground - usual times - usual places.I will let you know on here and on the Facebook page if there are any changes, so please keep checking."
