Wishing all our members a Happy and Healthy New Year

2020 has certainly been challenging, let’s hope the situation improves in 2021.

Our Committee is very pleased that we managed to run all of our 4 Field Trial Stakes, the Inter Club Challenge and Club training sessions last year, whilst following social distancing guidelines.

D.W.S.C. plan to run Training Sessions and Working Tests in Spring and Summer this year, and hope that you will support your Club by coming along and having a bit of fun with your Spaniels.

Meanwhile good luck with gundog training at home and we hope to see you all soon.
