Clumber Walks!

The Ashridge Walk is due to be held next Sunday and the weather is going to be better . Offering us light cloud and cooler temperatures. We still have some places. Car parking is free but the NT would like a donation of £3-4 per car to help their funds. They are not charging us the Possible £50 processing fee. for organised walks.

The Kingsbury Water Park Walk is on 5th August. This has been a popular walk in the past so do book early.
As it is summer blue-green algae are present yet again on Bodymoor water foreshore so, as with last year, we will need to keep the dogs on leads in that particular area.
The car park fee is £4:50 payable on entry please have the correct change at the automatic barrier, £2, £1, 50p, 20p, 10p coins are accepted.

Well Clumberfest 2018 is upon us!! Can’t wait to see you all later this week!!!

The forecast for Wiltshire this weekend is currently mid to high 20’s so please bear this in mind when you visit us.

There will be shelters for shade but you are welcome to bring your own as well. There is plenty of drinking water for the dogs (and humans) and a small amount of freezer space for ice cube making.

We will play wether we go for a walk on Saturday and how many games we play on Sunday on how hot it is and how the dogs (and humans) are coping….even if we don’t walk we can still relax and socialise with our fabulous breed. The Saturday evening quiz and Sunday raffle draw is of course still on…even a heat wave cant stop Peters quiz!!!

The World of Clumbers – Pictures Required

 

UK Clumber people

We would welcome a few “everyday” pictures of life with Clumbers to accompany the UK national article in the upcoming ‘World of Clumbers’ book.

Selection will be made by the editor in chief, Bas Bosch.

Any submissions to be sent to my email  along with any descriptions, captions, copyright acknowledgements etc.

Webmaster

Six weeks ago due to pressure of work ( I am away many nights per week and playing catch-up when I am home) I resigned the position of webmaster for the Clumber Spaniel Club website as it was proving too difficult to keep up with the changes and additions required.

Since then I have noticed there have been no posts at all. Also in that time an attempt was made by someone to do something that corrupted the site and I spent an evening restoring the website to a working condition.

In view of this, and to be blunt how proud Pamela and I were of the website we have created (Pam does a huge amount!) I did not want to see this website degrade into what was here originally which was hard to navigate, poor content and rarely updated.

So, much to my wife’s horror I have agreed to take on the management of the website again (with Pam’s help).

It will take a while to get the results (and critiques posted – nothing since we posted the last ones!) so please be patient, but we will get there eventually, ditto the committee information and judging lists etc.

Of course if anybody is interested in managing the website – please let me know.

Finally, please note, I am having NOTHING to do with the CSC Facebook pages, that will continue to be managed by the Club Secretary & other committee members!
