Announcements - April Champ Show & Working SubCommittee

It is with bitter regret that the Committee of the NNC has been forced to cancle the scheduled April Champ show due to current situation with COVID-19. This decision was not taken lightly, but we dare not risk the lives of our judge, the committee, and the exhibitors, especially since only a small percentage of adults will have been vaccinated by April.

The Kennel Club and the judge, Mr Stephen Hourihan have been informed, but it is not all bad news as we have been able to secure a new date for this show which will take place later in the year under the same judge.

Therefore, the following is the situation in respect of Champ shows in 2021:

  • The cancelled April Champ show from 2020 will be judged by Mrs Kirsteen Farrar on 13 November 2021
  • The cancelled April Champ show from 2021 will be judged by Mr Stephan Hourihan on 04 December 2021

This means that there will be TWO Champ shows held this year giving exhibitors two chances to qualify their dogs for Crufts 2022. We apologise for this unavoidable situation, but hope that you are all well and staying safe.

The committee of the NNC are currently looking for members who are interested in joining the new WSC (Working SubCommittee). If you have a depth of knowledge of working procedures (both Water & Draught) and would be willing to share your expertise with others, then plwase apply in writing.

The WSC is responsible for overseeing the running of the working side of the club on behalf of the Main Committee and is accountable to the Main Committee

If you are interested then please send your written application, outlining your experience/expertise to the club secretary, Jill Barker by email to either secretary@northernnewfoundlandclub.org.uk or startreknewf@aol.com.

NNC Welfare

Welfare Still Needs Your Help!

As you know the Northern Newfoundland Club Welfare believes that we all have a responsibility to rescue dogs in need; to educate the public about the desirability of adopting Newfoundlands as companions and family pets in the home.

None of this would be possible without the generous donations of money that we receive, and therefore we are appealling to you all to help by making a donation to NNC Welfare.

To find out more about the work and some of the costs involved, click the link below.

Our members and visitors to this our Club website are vitally important to our fund raising efforts therefore we have decided to raise the profile of Welfare by including below a new Welfare Paypal donation facility. We would be most grateful for any donation, however small.

Coming Soon - February 2021

The Northern Newfoundland Club is pleased to announce our first virtual online show to be judged in February 2021. The show includes Newfoundlands (classification) & all breeds (novelty). The show schedule and entry details to be published on 1st February 2021.
