Popularly known as "The Wales and West" our primary focus is the area from West Midlands down to Cornwall in England and most of Wales
Our activities are centred in that area but we support the cause of Shih Tzu and their owners from all over the country and accept members nationwide and further.
Mr Les Williams (Crowvalley)
It was with great sadness that we heard Mr Les Williams of the Crowvalley Kennel passed away on 16th August 2017. Les was a founder member of our Club and one of the main organisers of the initial meeting that resulted in the establishment of the Club in the 1980's and, served on the Committee for many years.
The Crowvalley Kennel produced many Breed Champions over the years and appears in the pedigrees of a lot of the dogs being shown today.
Les was a very well respected judge, who judged the breed at Championship Show level on numerous ocassions, including Crufts in 2006, with his final appointment being the Joint Shih Tzu Clubs Championship Show in 2012.
Our thoughts and prayers go to his wife Betty, family and friends at this sad time.
The funeral service will be held on Thursday 7th September, Private Burial for Family members only, followed by a Memorial Service 11.15 a.m. at St Hilda’s Church, Kemys Street, Griffithstown, Pontypool, NP4 5DJ., where all are welcome.
Family flowers only, donations in lieu may be given at the service for H.D.U. Nevill Hall Hospital, Abergavenny
