Peter Mann is the new chairman of Crufts Committee

AT LAST week’s first Crufts Committee meeting since the new committee was constituted Mr Peter Mann, the former KC Vice Chairman who stood down last month, was elected as its new chairman, following on from Miss sybil Churchill who retired in June under the Kennel Club ‘age rule’.

Mr Mann was elected to the Crufts Committee about three weeks before the first meeting along with KC general Committee members Mrs Ann Bliss and Mrs Val Foss.

The vice chairman Mr Terry thorn, who was in contention for the ‘chair’, remains in that office.

The new chairman of the Judges’ Sub Committee Mrs Ann Arch has indicated that she will no longer accept invitations to complete judges’ questionnaires.

When invited to stand and before the ballot, Mrs Ann Arch made it known that, should she be elected, she would not accept any further invitations to complete Judges' Questionnaires for new breeds during her term of service on that Sub Committee. She will, if invited, continue to judge breeds to which she has previously been approved to award CCs. This decision was confirmed in writing to The Kennel Club Chairman on June 19th immediately after the General Committee Ballot.
