Mr Gwyn Ball
It is with great sadness that we wish to inform you that Mr Gwyn Ball (Wynmar) passed away earlier today.(20th December 2021).
Gwyn was a founder member and Committee member of the Shih Tzu Club of South Wales and Western Counties. He was also the Club Patron and a Life Member.
With his wife Marina, who passed away in 2015, Gwyn showed under the Wynmar affix and was also an experienced Judge, who awarded CC’s in the Breed. He fulfilled his last appointment in 2011, when he judged Dogs at the Shih Tzu Club of South Wales and Western Counties Championship Show.
In addition to his involvement with Shih Tzu, Gwyn also served as a Committee member on the South Wales Kennel Association.
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to Gwyn’s sister in law; Christine Hughes and all of his Family and friends.
We are very sad to announce the passing of Anne Bradshaw, who along with her partner Roger Howes was a very active Committee member of the Club for many years. She was also a very keen exhibitor and is probably best remembered in recent years for her campaigning Ch Just Tom of Monschau to his title in 2011.
We offer our sincere condolences to Roger and all od Anne's family and friends.
Her funeral will be held at 9.30 a.m. on Tuesday 16th November at Westerleigh Crematorium, Westerleigh, Bristol BS37 8QP.
Championship Show in Partnership With South Wales Kennel Association - October 2021
As you will be aware, we were forced to cancel our second Championship Show of this year, which was to be held in October in partnership with the SWKA.
After considering all of the options available, in relation to finding a suitable venue and, possible COVID issues later in the year, the Committee has made the decision to carry this show forward to next year and, it will now be held in partnership with the Welsh Kennel Club in August 2022 where the judge will still be Yvonne Forbes (Ekland)
As a consequence of this we will now be holding two Championship Shows next year and we will update you with further details of the other show in due course.
We still have spaces available for this years 50's Club. A £12 payment will give you 12 chances to win a prize of £25, one for each month of the year. Your number is put into the draw for each month of the year, so you can win more than once and this has happened many times before. The draw is held at the end of the year when all prizes are distributed.
The funds raised provide valuable financial support in assisting the Club run in its activities throughout the year. If you would like to join, please contact our Secretary on 01443 440870 or email her - firstname.lastname@example.org
