Club History

 

Our club had its inaugural meeting in Bristol on the 1st April 1964.

Although there were only 17 people present to instigate the formation of the club, there were 36 founder members that completed the application to the Kennel Club.

Our first show was a ‘members only’ Limited Show held in Bristol Which was judged by Miss Vera Munday, we held our first Open Show on the 28th May 1966.

Our first Championship Show was held on the 19th August 1967, judged by Mr A Wood (Pomerywood).  He chose for is Best in Show Champion Dorrits Susannes Treasure owned by Mrs D Baynes.

 

Over all these years, we have had only 3 Chairmen :–

 

Ron Darchambaud  -  1964-1982

 

David Stroud  -  1982-2008

 

Colin Butler  -  2008-present

 

The post of Secretary has also been held with equal loyalty by only 4 people since 1964:-

 

Vic Tuckwell  -  1964-1973

 

Gwyn Kellar  -  1973-1978

 

Ivy Millard  -  1978-1991

 

Jean Drake  -  1991-present

 

I am still, at present, searching through the archives for a complete list of the post of President and our Patrons.
