Shropshire Gundog Society held their AV Retriever Working Tests – Novice & Open – on Sunday 11th July 2021 at Pradoe Home Farm, West Felton by kind permission of Mr & Mrs Andrew & Rachel Kenyon & the Shoot Captain of Pradoe Shoot, Mr Simon Goodall.
Our sponsors are Skinners Dog Foods & thanks to them for their continued support.
Huge thanks to our judges, Vikki Stanley, John Yarwood, Graham Home and Warren Jones (who stepped in at the last minute when our 4th judge had to stand down due to ill health) – they did a fantastic job.
Thanks to all the committee members, helpers, stewards, dummy placers & throwers who kept the day running smoothly. Special thanks to our cake makers! And thanks to all the competitors too for supporting the club. I hope you enjoyed your day.
The proceeds of the raffle – a fantastic £130 – will go to the Midlands Air Ambulance. Thanks for your support with that.
