Our thanks to the Pub Charity who supported us in getting bollards put around our club grounds which has stopped cars ripping up the grounds. Also funding a new zip after the old one flooded the kitchen. We were also privileged to get set of New Agility Equipment which is helping with our Training evenings as well as at our Show. Many Thanks Pub Charity for your continued support and generosity.
