39TH Championship Show
SUNDAY 8TH April 2018
WALFORD COLLEGE CAMPUS. NORTH SHROPSHIRE COLLEGE, BASCHURCH, SHROPSHIRE SY4 2HL
Walford Campus is the Agricultural, Horticultural and Engineering Campus of the College. It is located in almost 600 acres of grounds in a beautiful rural setting, but within easy reach of large conurbations such as Birmingham and Manchester (some 60 miles) and only half an hour from the M54. The grounds include mature woodlands, new tree plantations, lakes and a rough game shoot.
Large car parks and plenty of dog exercising areas (pick up after your dogs please).
The Campus Restaurant provides snacks and full meals at very reasonable prices and will be open all day.
There is a full-sized Sports Hall (45mx22m approx) available if we have to use indoor facilities ( mats will be used) and well mown grass rings nearby if weather is good.

|WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU ALL THERE|
Linda Taylor our breed health coordinator, has forwarded the message below from Dr Tom Lewis Post-doctoral Quantitative Geneticist Animal Health Trust,
“As you may know, we have been involved in compiling a health survey for the Irish Setters with a particular focus on Bloat, which hopefully will mean we are able to determine how heritable this condition is. This survey is going to be online, which will considerably cut the costs and manpower required to collate the data gathered. We feel that the web is the ideal format to conduct such health surveys, and would like to extend this survey to the other Setter breeds.
Therefore, I am hoping, with the help of the Kennel Club, to generate an online health survey for English Setters. The flexibility availed by conducting surveys online means that the survey will appear tailored to English Setters once the user has indicated their dog is of this breed. “
If you have any questions or topics you would like to be put forward for inclusion, please let the secretary have them and she will forward these to Linda for her consideration.
