WHILST THERE is a fair amount of time until the entries for W.E.L.K.S. close the Secretary Mrs Sheila Jakeman is concerned that threatened strike action by postal workers may have a serious affect on the delivery of her mail.
Unfortunately the Oxford sorting office has a poor record in recent years so she suggests that intending exhibitors would be wise to send their entries in early.
The show will be held at the three Counties Showground, Malvern Worcestershire on the 26th to 28th April and it is sincerely hoped that nothing as dreadful as last years F & M outbreak will occur to force a cancellation again.
The fees are £19 per dog in a breed with CCs and £15 for AVs and non CC breeds, all subsequent entries at £3 and the same fee to prepay for a catalogue. The actual closing date is not until the 4th March (postmark) and schedule can be obtained from the Secretary, Mrs Sheila Jakeman, at Lyneham Lake, Kingham, Oxford OX7 6UJ.
