We had a good attendance at the AGM which was a rather jolly affair.  Sadly missed the people who weren’t very well.  The Officers remained the same,

Chairman – Richard Villis

Secretary – Margaret Robinson

Treasurer – Joyce Keable

There were two new members added to the Committee which is now made up of : Liz Villis, Pippa Hill, Chris Cloke, Nathan Parkinson, plus the officers.

There was just one rule change, and that was the addition of “The Chairman shall have the casting vote.”

4 people will go to the WCRA Talk in on 12th February, Chris and Julia Cloke, and Sonja and Martin Moore.   Our questions include why the Champs are being held at Maidstone, and the members, arrangements for meetings and voting rights of the
WCRA Committee.

We agreed to hold another Dog Show on 3rd May, our normal Open on 26th July, and two Charity Opens, one April 19th and the other September 27th.  The proceeds from the charity events to be split between JR Whippet Rescue and Santa Clara Tobarra  (a Spanish Dog Rescue)
