The Dachshund Club unsurprisingly will not be holding its Open Show and AGM at the end of February 2021. Our AGM will be held online on Saturday 27th March 2021 at 10am. Members will need to register their intention to attend and will be sent joining instructions. Further details will be published later.
We are delighted that Eastern Counties Dachshund Association have agreed to allow us to hold our Open Show in conjunction with their Championship Show on Sunday 6th June 2021 at Newark Showground Newark. The show will be held outdoors on a large grassed area, where exhibitors are able to set up tents, gazebos etc if they wish to do so.
