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
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.
