Shows and the postal dispute

RECENT DISRUPTION of the Royal Mail service in certain areas may have caused a delay in the receipt of some entries for the LKA show. On Kennel Club advice and with the limited time available, entries have been dealt with to the best of our ability in the circumstances, and over 8000 forms have been checked in.

The National Exhibition Centre and the local authority required detailed floor plans several weeks before the show and our architect cannot proceed with these until the number of dogs in each breed is known. Such figures can only be produced by computer when all the entry forms have been keyed into the database.

Both stages of preparation for the show are, of necessity, confined to a very tight time scale. Should any entries be received which are too late for inclusion, we will return them as quickly as possible.

The LKA apologises for this but we hope exhibitors will understand that the situation is totally outside our control.
