You will observe that there are positions not filled for the coming year. Namely that of Chairman. Nick Olley has been filling the role for a number of years and feels it time to stand down. Kate Opie who has filled Retriever working test roll in the past has agreed to take on the job of Secretary. We naturally thank them both for the excellent work they have both done, and wish them all the best for the future.

Any new nominations should be in compliance with the Society rule no 5. Remember we are not looking for experts just people who are willing to help, and to give of their time. All applicants to be proposed and seconded by 2 fully paid up members.
