NNC Main Committee
Important Announcement - NNC Champ Show
It is with regret that the NNC Committee have decided to cancel our forthcoming Championship Show on 24 October 2020 to be judged by
Mrs Kirsteen Farrar.
The decision has not been taken lightly, but in view of the present Government Guidelines and Kennel Club recommendations relating to Covid 19, the Committee have decided this is the safest course of action for our Judge, exhibitors, show officials and stewards. Our main concerns must be the safety and health of everyone who would attend the show.
We are in conversation with the KC in regard to rescheduling the 2020 Championship show later in 2021, so the NNC will be holding TWO Champ shows next year as well as our usual Open Show in August 2021. The 3 April 2021 Show (Judge Mr Stephen Hourihan) will go ahead as normal, and is unaffected by these changes. Once we have a definite date agreed with the KC and Mrs Farrar, we will let everyone know.
The NNC Officers and Committee would like to thank all our members and exhibitors for their continued support during these difficult times.
For the reasons outlined above, the NNC AGM will also take place online and not at Winwick. All AGM documentation will be sent electronically to all members. Members without email will receive documentation by post. Adoption of the Accounts by members will be also be done by electronic reply. We are searching for a new Treasurer urgently, so if you are an NNC member and have the skills and time, please contact me.
One bright light on the horizon, is the Newfletter. Our editor Rachel Hutchinson has been extremely busy finishing the compilation, and our printer is now back in business . So all members will receive the Newfletter and new Membership book soon.
We can then look forward to a happier, safer 2021.
Hon Secretary and Show Manager.

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.
Club Open Show
The NNC Open Show was judged by Mrs Liz Shears; We had an great entry of dogs, their was a very friendly atmosphere and the show was extremely successful.
All Results, Photos & Critiques are now online.
Breeder & Puppy Website
The Northern Newfoundland Club has recently launched a new website for breeders and puppy buyers.
The primary purpose of this web site is to put potential Newfoundland puppy buyers in touch with reputable and recognised breeders by steering them away from general online puppy sites (e.g. Epupz, etc).
