Clumberfest 2018

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!!!

Lastly…..last call if you would like any meat ordered from Styles Farm, just drop Pam a message on Facebook

If you would like to join us all info is on the Clumberfest page – https://www.facebook.com/groups/1716779978550177/

Or drop Peter/Pam an email via the webmaster email address – webmaster@clumberspanielclub.org.uk

See you all in a few days!

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.

As these images are for print, higher file sizes are more likely to be selected.

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!

Website Down Briefly

Many apologies – there was a brief technical hitch.

Now all resolved.

Webmaster Required – and Thank You!

This is just a note to let you know that for personal reasons I have relinquished control of the website (and the Clumber Spaniel Club Facebook Page) and passed all relevant information to the officers of the Clumber Spaniel Committee on 14th May for a new webmaster to take control.

It is obvious that no one has taken over yet as the results of the election for Chair has not been announced, neither have the results for Championship Shows been updated.

On a personal note, I am very pleased with the way this website has developed and grateful to Pamela Sheppard for all her help and support in its design and upkeep.

I hope the new incumbent can keep the website up to date with timely club information and show results as it can become a valuable resource for the future.

Best Regards

Peter Sheppard
