STANDARD POODLE CLUB MESSAGE
FROM CHAIRMAN: PETER LITTLE OBE
Letters have been posted today to all members of the Standard Poodle Club to say that the Club's AGM scheduled for 18 April has been postponed until further notice. However, there were no further nominations or Items for Agenda at the deadline of 21 March so I confirm that the present Committee has been re-elected and will serve another year.
I also announce that the Kennel Club have agreed to our request to move the date of our Championship Show from 11 July to the date of our Open Show on Saturday 3 October. It will be held at the Kennel Club Building, Stoneleigh as previously. I am grateful to our judges for confirming their availability on this new date. Amended details will appear on Fosse Data website in due course and we will update on this website and our Facebook page at Official Standard Poodle Club.
The Standard Poodle Club is trying to give a clear statement in a rapidly changing environment as we know members and friends of the Club have been anxious given so much uncertainty.
Crufts 5th March NEC
The Standard Poodle Club had a busy Breed Club stand at Crufts ringside.
Thank you for all members and friends who visited. Peter Little OBE our Chairman, David Dennison our Treasurer and Carole Grundy a loyal SPC member manned the stand.
