STOP PRESS

After careful consideration and taking into account the information provided by the Government, NHS England and The Kennel Club in relation to the Covid-19 outbreak it is with regret that the committee have decided to cancel the Summer Open Show.
We plan to hold the Annual General Meeting at our Championship Show on 10 October 2020.
We apologise for any inconvenience but hope you all understand that the Health & Safety of all our members, exhibitors and committee is paramount at this time.

The 2020 HANDBOOK is due to be published in conjunction with the Championship Show on 10th October 2020. We are pleased to announce that the price has been held at 25 for the third time. This Handbook will only be available to advance order. If you do not order and pay in advance the Club cannot guarantee availability. Click here for an order form.

The Club is holding a Breed Appreciation Day & Multi Choice Question Paper on Sunday 27 September 2020 at Kingston Bagpuize, Oxon. For more details click here.
