Important Information...

“Unfortunately there has been another major flood in the breed society office.  I am in the process of trying to set up a call diversion system to a mobile phone, so please bear with us if you are trying to call the office. If you are able to email it is probably a better way to contact me at the moment.

Also all the annual returns and AGM information were ready to be posted out, but they got wet, so all have to be done again, so there will be a little delay on you receiving these”.
