Announcement – Apr 2023

Announcement regarding the 2023 Championship Show Judge, Le Weekend 2023 format and Margaret Green’s funeral.

Dear Members,

We are pleased to announce that we have secured a replacement judge for the 2023 Championship Show, due to be held on Saturday, 15th July. Subject to Kennel Club approval, breed specialist Mr Ray Greenwood (Joymonds) will officiate at the show due to be held at Oakridge Arena, Newark.

Unfortunately, we could not secure a venue to hold Le Weekend 2023 in its traditional format so it will be held as two separate events, with the working and fun activities held later in the year.

Please rest assured that the Committee have been working hard to secure a suitable venue for Le Weekend 2024 onwards, and hopefully, we will have some good news to share with you shortly.


Early in the week, the Club were saddened to receive the news that Margaret Green, the former Club President, had passed away.

We have been informed that Margaret’s funeral will take place on Friday, 28th April, at 1pm, Aberystwyth Crematorium. There will be the option for those unable to attend in person to watch a live stream of the service, and further details will be posted on the website when they become available.

For those attending the funeral, Margaret has requested that brightly coloured clothes are worn only, no black. Flowers from close friends are welcome. Otherwise, donations in lieu of flowers are to be made to Brittany Rescue and Rehoming and to English Setter Association Welfare.

Brittany Rescue donation details can be found on the website: https://www.brittanyclub.co.uk/brittany-rescue-rehoming/

English Setter Association Welfare donation details can be found: http://www.englishsetterassociation.co.uk/about_esa.html#:~:text=The%20English%20Setter%20Welfare%20Association%20is%20there%20to,Facebook%20where%20stunning%20items%20of%20memorabilia%20are%20auctioned.
