We will open the Annual General Meeting 10 minutes late to allow anyone who has gone to The Golden Pheasant, Farringdon, to arrive.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

To get from The Golden Pheasant to Holybourne Village Hall
Proceed north towards Alton on the A32
Turn right at the A31 roundabout (signposted Farnham)
Follow the A31 approx 3 miles to the next roundabout and take the first exit

Proceed along London Road approx half a mile - you will go into a "dip" in the road.

"This is a message from your rather ancient old President to all concerned.

Well, we have done it - arrived at 25 years, and we are still (I hope) the happy and friendly club that we set out to be at that first meeting.  When I announced in the Dog World that there would be a meeting of like-minded people who wanted to have a club right down here on the south coast that would cater for people who wanted to have fun with their dogs and to have shows that they didn’t have to travel hundreds of miles to go to, I didn’t expect the following.

The hall was booked and when the meeting was due to start, there was standing room only - WOW!   My husband took the chair and lots of people had lots to say and at the end of the meeting it was a definite "YES".  Almost everyone signed up as founder members - and we were on the way.

Anyway, here we are after 25 years and we had a wonderful show on Sunday.   I have to say a very big “thank you“ to a simply superb committee for the tremendous amount of hard work they put in on the day and of course the massive amount of preparation that goes with running an important show beforehand.   Also, thank you to all the wonderful exhibitors without whom there would be no show.

On a personal note, I also have to say a big thank you for the beautiful flowers and the gift presented to me at the show and I have to say I felt very humble because all I was doing over those many years was doing what I loved and “enjoying myself “.

Anyway, my last thank you goes (of course) to the beautiful dogs, for without them - there would be no club.   I just adore my Staffords and I don’t care if they never win anything again in their lives, I couldn’t live without them – bless their little cotton paws!!!

Anyway, enough from me.  Keep on coming and promoting the breed and give your dogs all the love and protection you can – they are the best breed in the world.  (Sorry to all of us who are Border Terrier and Frenchie people – they run a very strong second!!!)

All my love,
