Dear Members, Friends, Exhibitors and Visitors,
After much consideration the Officers and Committee of The Bull Terrier Club regret to announce that Trophy Show scheduled for February 2021 has been cancelled.
The planning for the show starts the moment the previous years show ends and with that The Club has a considerable financial out lay as the Show draws ever closer. Given the Government/Kennel Club guidelines on the management of a show under the current conditions, a dog show becomes difficult to manage and run with the restrictions placed on us all. This continues to change frequently and is a major challenge which is apparent by the large number of shows to date being cancelled.
As you would expect, we have been monitoring the situation closely and have been in consultation with the Hotel we use to host our event and at the time of writing they can only host an event with 30 or less attendees.
A proportion of our guests are from overseas and it is anticipated that there will be a large number of guests who will be reluctant to travel to the UK or indeed may not be permitted to. Equally those based in the UK may also not be able to attend.
Taking everything into consideration this difficult decision has been taken in order to protect everyone’s health, safety and wellbeing.
We hope you recognise that the safety of all our guests is paramount and hope you appreciate the reason for our decision.
We wish you all the greatest of health and hope to see you all soon in the near future.
Elaine M. Ball
The Bull Terrier Club
