Open Show 4th October 2020

It is with regret that the Officers and Committee of SWGRC have to announce that we will be cancelling our forthcoming Open Show which was due to be held on the 4th October 2020 at Oake village hall.

This decision has not been taken lightly but we feel that the safety of all the persons who would have been attending the show is the most important and significant factor in our decision. We are also following the KC and Government guide lines, relating to the Corona Virus pandemic.

We would also like to say due to the very sudden and sad passing of our Judge for the show, Andrea Swatton, we felt out of respect it was the correct decision to make at this time.

We do hope we will be able to hold our Championship show in March and our April Open show 2021 and hope you will all come along and support the shows.

Until we can all meet up again at dog shows and enjoy our hobby in safe conditions keep well and stay safe.

Message from the Club Chairman

Dear Members

During the last few Months, our lives have been turned upside-down with the arrival of the Coronavirus and the new "lockdown rules." It is very hard for all of us not being able to see Family and Friends and I am sure that many are finding it hard to cope.

New rules have also brought a great deal of hardship and loneliness so I just wanted to say that as a club, we are here to help in any way we can.

If anyone finds they need help or are struggling with their Dogs, we are here to help with their welfare. Be it just a call for a chat or help looking after the Dogs in some way, we as a Committee are happy to offer our services where we can. 

All calls and enquiries will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

So, until we are all able to socialise again in the "Dog World" please take care and keep well.

Glennis Hewitson (Chairman)
