The COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged so much of our society this year, and many organizations have been forced to close down for a while – including ours. However, we’re pleased to announce that we will be reopening the obedience school very soon (on xx date). In addition, we have taken the opportunity to make some changes to make your experience as a Club member even better.
Sadly, a loved and valued part of the club, Greg Harding, passed away recently. While some of you may not have known Greg, he worked hard behind the scenes and will surely be missed. Fay Harding is now the sole contact point for all Club matters. Fay loves training dogs and would be pleased to welcome existing members back to the club as well as new members. Previous members are also welcome back, as the club very much intends to continue in Fay’s capable hands.
Even in these times of severe restrictions, we can all still enjoy our time with our dogs and in fact, now is probably a better time than ever to make the most of outdoor activities – which of course, are so much more fun with a dog.
To kick-start our re-opening, we’ve refreshed our website and are using a new facility for taking bookings, including a cashless system for payments. These changes should make it easier for you to book your classes and find out what’s on and when.
Whether it’s running on the beach or enjoying long walks together, the experience is far more enjoyable with an obedient dog who looks forward to fun times with his or her owner. And what better way of keeping fit, especially when we are all being asked to look after our health as much as possible?
The club can only thrive with your co-operation, so we not only need your participation in the classes, but we also would love to have your involvement and feedback in the changes we’re making, so we can continue into the future, and hopefully grow and flourish together. If you have any ideas about how to make the club a better place for all members, please don’t hesitate to share them with Fay.
We would also ask that if you know of any former members who may be interested in coming back, or if you are a former member yourself, and you are interested in working more closely with Fay on her own, then please get in touch and ask others to do the same. The more numbers we have, the easier it will be to keep going in these difficult times.
Full details of how to join the club, as well as where and when the classes are held, can be found on the website, as well as answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. Everything you need is there – get in touch.
We’re really looking forward to welcoming you back again soon – and your wonderful dogs, of course!
