Christmas message from our Chairman

As most of you will now be aware our former chairman Peter Swinburn passed away on 13th December. He never really recovered from the loss of his wife Julia almost 2 years ago, they were married for over 50 years and had known each other over 60 years, so not at all surprising that it hit him so hard.

I have known him for 30 years during which time we visited many parts of Europe, Denmark, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, exhibiting Kookerhundjies, Hamiltons and Swissies, and enjoyed a certain amount of success.

Now his final wish has been granted and he is able to rejoin Julia and their many four legged friends waiting at the Rainbow bridge for him

We are still having to be very careful with this latest strain of the virus that is sweeping the country so please all take care and stay safe.

Just remains for me to wish you and all your doggie friends a very Happy Christmas and healthy New Year and hopefully we may all be able to meet up sometime soon in 2022.
