Statement from the Committee of the Clumber Spaniel Club
The CSC Committee had a very positive meeting last night and is pleased to report that Lesley Knowles has agreed to take on the role of Acting Secretary for us. She may be contacted on 07734 308186 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arrangements will now be made for the transfer of Club correspondence and equipment so please bear with us for a few days while this takes place; further updates will be made as information becomes available.
The next committee meeting will be held on the 7th February.
All members should now have received a letter from Eunice King, the Clumber Spaniel Club Secretary, informing you that a request has been made to summon a Special General Meeting. At the time of receiving the request the country was under the tier system of Covid restrictions and so the committee sought the guidance of the Kennel Club who responded with the following:-
“Our general advice for clubs considering online members’ meetings is that the committee would need to canvass and consider the views of the membership for conducting an online AGM. If the committee can set up the appropriate facility, whereby all members who wish to participate can securely and exclusively view documentation and vote upon it, this maybe a reasonable alternative. The committee will need to ensure that all members receive notification of the meeting, (at least 14 days’ notice), and that any members without internet access are accommodated. No member should be disenfranchised from participating. The required quorum must be reached at the time of voting. However, if there is a strength of view from the membership that the meeting should not be conducted in this way, but delayed until restrictions are lifted, the committee must accede to this.”
To seek the views of all member a ballot paper has also been sent out which needs to be completed and returned by 31st January 2021.
If you are a fully paid member of the CSC and have not received your SGM notification and ballot paper please contact the Secretary at email@example.com

Joint Statement from The Clumber Spaniel Club and The Working Clumber Spaniel Society
The Clumber Spaniel Club and The Working Clumber Spaniel Society would like to clear up any confusion with regards to recent accusations of Clumber/Cocker crosses. We would like to make it clear that the Kennel Club has currently found no evidence of crossbreeding, no action has been taken against any breeders nor have any dogs been removed from the KC register. In addition to this both Embark (Breed Identification test) and Wisdom (Dog Breed DNA test) have stated that their tests are not suitable as breed purity tests and should not be used in this way.
