LADIES KENNEL ASSOCIATION 2020 SHOW CANCELLED

The Officers and Committee of Ladies Kennel Association very sadly regret to announce that our Championship Show due to take place on 12 and 13 December 2020 at the NEC is now cancelled.
We have been working very hard behind the scenes with the NEC and attempted to see our way through the Government Covid19 Regulations on how our large indoor show could be safely managed and allow us to go ahead. After taking all matters into consideration but placing as a priority the welfare and safety of our exhibitors, judges, stewards, trade stands and the many helpers that give up their time to work with us, it was deemed necessary to cancel the show this year. All judges, contractors and the many people that help us put on the show will of course be informed separately.
We hope you understand our decision and look forward to seeing you all at our 2021 show which we plan to be bigger and better than ever.
Gillian Marley, LKA Secretary

Driffield Championship Dog Show Society – Statement
The Officers and Committee of the Driffield Championship Dog Show Society regret to announce the cancellation of the forthcoming show to be held at Wetherby Racecourse over the weekend of October 1st to 4th 2020.
This decision has not been taken lightly. The safety of all persons who would be expected to attend the show is the most important and significant factor in this decision.
Following the guidance given by the Government and the strong recommendations of The Kennel Club concerning the COVID-19 Pandemic, it has been advised that events such as major dog shows during this year should be cancelled, unless sufficient safety precautions could be implemented.
Given that Driffield is the last outdoor Championship Dog Show of the year it was seen as not suitable to apply for a new license to defer to a later date, which could only happen if items such as venue, hotel and everything else required for the organisation of the show was available.
The Society therefore share your disappointment and sadness that the show must be cancelled, however we look forward to seeing old friends and those new to our sport at the same venue but on the new dates for 2021, Friday 26th August through to Monday 29th August.
In the meantime, please stay safe and well.
The Secretary will write to all Judges contracted to judge at our 2020 show with a full explanation of the situation.

Hon. Secretary
Driffield Championship Dog Show Society

RICHMOND DOG SHOW SOCIETY
ANNOUNCEMENT RELATING TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS (15/05/2020)

The Officers and Committee of the Richmond Dog Show Society have noted the strong recommendation made by the Kennel Club, on 13th May, that in the light of the continued restrictions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic that all forthcoming events until the end of September should be cancelled.
Logistical uncertainties including availability of the venue, the ability of contractors and suppliers to support the planning, setting up and running of the show, the willingness or otherwise of spectators, exhibitors, judges, stewards, helpers and trade stand holders to risk possible exposure to the virus, the provision of hotel accommodation, and the requirement to adhere to social distancing at the show have also been considered.
In the light of the above the Officers and Committee have concluded that it would be contrary to government policy and Kennel Club guidance and socially irresponsible to continue with plans to hold the Society's forthcoming 2020 championship show on 11th-13th September.
We fully understand and regret the sense of disappointment and sadness this announcement will cause to our members, sponsors, judges, exhibitors, stewards, and commercial trade partners. All our appointed judges for the 2020 show will be contacted and informed of the situation and offered the same appointment at a subsequent show.
We wish all our members and supporters continued health and safety in the wake of these unprecedented effects on lifestyle and socialisation that are proving so restrictive and frustrating to so many of us and look forward to being able to welcome you all at our show to be held on Friday, 10th to Sunday, 12th September 2021.
Ron James (Secretary)

THE WELSH KENNEL CLUB ANNOUNCEMENT
It is with regret that the Welsh Kennel Club announces that its 2020 Championship Show Is cancelled.
This decision has been made in the interest of the welfare, safety and security of judges, exhibitors, spectators, volunteers and the officers and committee, caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
WKC are also aware of the Welsh Assembly Government guidelines which continue to enforce the lock-down etc in Wales. There are many uncertainties which adversely affect the preparation and actual running of the WKC 2020 show.
The doubts in the availability of the RWAS showground, hotel accommodation plus social restrictions, all dictate as to whether the show can proceed and have contributed to the decision to cancel the 2020 show.
2020 judges will be contacted to advise of the cancellation and to offer a future appointment.
The officers and committee of the Welsh Kennel Club send their best wishes to our members, supporters, exhibitors, stewards and all judges at this most difficult time.
We look forward to your support at the Welsh Kennel Club 2021 show to be held between 20th and 22nd August 2021 at the RWAS showground, Builth Wells.
Graham Hill
Joint Secretary
The Welsh Kennel Club


LEEDS CHAMPIONSHIP DOG SHOW - Statement
It is with regret that the officers and committee of LEEDS championship show have decided to cancel this year’s show.
Due to Government guidelines regarding social distancing and public gatherings, which are doubtful to be lifted in the very near future, and the fact that the venue is closed with no immediate signs of opening, the hotel we use being occupied by NHS and key workers and many of our contractors either being closed or diverted to front line duties, there really is no option.
As well as all of this and most importantly we are mindful that the health and well being of all of our exhibitors, judges, stewards, and helpers is of paramount importance.
It is very disappointing for everyone but health and safety comes before a dog show and we look forward to seeing you all next year when we hope to celebrate our 70th Anniversary in style.
Keep safe and well.

WINDSOR CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW – COVID-19 - STATEMENT 15th APRIL 2020
All will be aware by now of the advice issued by the Kennel Club regarding the staging of events. Although our show, scheduled for 2nd to 5th July, falls outside their recommended date of 30th June, to cancel events, our show set up starts well in advance of the show dates and as we are unable to guarantee the required medical cover and ancillary support services necessary for the show we have decided that cancellation is inevitable and an early advice of the situation preferable for all. Your health and wellbeing are of paramount importance to us at Windsor.
For those exhibitors who have entered online, refunds will be issued by Higham Press less an administrative charge of £5. Any cheques received that have not yet been presented will be destroyed. Any cheques already paid into our bank will be refunded by the Society. In both instances please be patient and allow time for your fees to be refunded.
It is with regret that we have made this decision but hope that all who contribute to our show, in whatever capacity, will understand and join us for our 2021 show when we hope we can meet again in happier circumstances.
With our best wishes to you from the Officers and Committee of Windsor.
Irene Terry, Hon Secretary

National Dog Show 2020 - statement
On 17th March the Kennel Club issued advice regarding the safety and security of competitors, spectators, volunteers and staff at Kennel Club events. The Officers and Committee of Birmingham National Dog Show, in line with Kennel Club advice that all Events should be cancelled until the end of June, have agreed to cancel the Championship Show scheduled for 7th – 10th May 2020.
The Society believe that postponing and rearranging later in the year would not be fair to other Championship and Breed Shows who have their show dates agreed for later in year and for this reason the Society have decided not to apply to the Kennel Club for a new show date in 2020. We hope that you will now look forward to joining us at our 2021 Show, when our aim, as always, will be to provide the best possible exhibitor experience.
All judges will now be contacted and exhibitors who have made entries will be given a refund of monies paid, less a £5 administrative charge.
Jennie Griffiths, Secretary

Bath Canine Society Dog Show 2020 - statement
On 17th March 2020, the Kennel Club issued advice regarding the safety and security of competitors, spectators, volunteers and staff at Kennel Club events. The Officers and Committee of Bath Canine Society, in line with Kennel Club advice that all Events should be cancelled until the end of June, have agreed to cancel the Championship Show scheduled for 22nd to 25th May 2020.
The Society has explored all possible options as to whether or not we can postpone until later in the year. Sadly, due to the non-availability of our contractors and due to the uncertainty of the current situation, we believe that postponing and rearranging later in the year would not be feasible and for this reason the Society have decided not to apply to the Kennel Club for a new show date in 2020. All judges will now be contacted and exhibitors who have made entries will be given a refund of monies paid, less a £5 administrative charge.
We hope that you understand the difficulty of the situation the Society has sadly been placed in but hope that we will look forward to seeing you at our 2021 Show, where the usual warm West Country welcome will await you
Lee Cox, Secretary

Three Counties Championship Show - statement

We are sure that you will understand and we share your disappointment. All judges and helpers will now be advised of our decision. All postal entries will be returned.

We will now continue with our preparations to provide a pleasant show in such beautiful surroundings next year and look forward to welcoming you in June 2021.

Cancelled due to Government Advice
Following the recent change in Government advice, it is with much regret that we can confirm the cancellation of the following events that were due to take place at Three Counties Showground this year.
CountryTastic – 9 April
RHS Malvern Spring Festival – 7-10 May
Three Counties Championship Dog Show – 4-7 June
Royal Three Counties Show – 12-14 June
Whilst we’re devastated to be making this announcement, we wholeheartedly support the Government on this matter. We know these events are a calendar highlight for many thousands of people and that our exhibitors, designers and traders spend many months getting ready for the show, but public health and safety has to be our number one priority, for the sake of our staff, visitors and for our wider community.
The cancellation of our shows will have a big impact on our staff and wider community in many ways. With this in mind, and with the uncertainty facing us in the months ahead, it’s more important than ever that we pull together to support the most vulnerable amongst us. We’re currently looking at ways that we as an organisation can get involved in wider community efforts.
Currently, the cancellation advice only affects CountryTastic, RHS Malvern Spring Festival, Three Counties Championship Dog Show and Royal Three Counties Show. We’re hoping to hold Malvern Autumn Show at the showground as planned. We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates should the Government advice change.
We will be in contact with everyone who has purchased tickets to the four cancelled events, along with all our stakeholders within the next 21 days.
We would like to thank our visitors, exhibitors, sponsors and all who support our shows, and extend our best wishes to everybody at this challenging time.
