ETT ( Black & Tan) Club – 2020 Championship Show.

By

After careful consideration the Club Committee have taken the decision that the 2020 Club Championship Show cannot proceed as planned this year. The normal venue - St Peter's Hall - is not open and in any event it would be too small to host the Show with the new Covid requirements. The Committee have been exploring other options to hold the Show in conjunction with a General Championship Show, however both Manchester and UK Toy are unavailable. The Committee will work to seek alternate arrangements to postpone the show however cancellation is an option if club members cannot be provided with a safe and reasonable venue and date. A final decision will be made next month." read more


Club Notices

New Club Patrons and Vice President

By

The English Toy Terrier (Black & Tan) Club is delighted to announce that Ruth Kitson (Quinoa) and Ted Ellis-Jones (Brynlythe) have accepted invitations to become the co-patrons of the Club. And John Richardson (Reeberich) has accepted the invitation to become the Club Vice-President. All three have made huge contributions to the Club over the years as Committee members and office bearers. They have also worked tirelessly to promote the breed through delivering seminars, manning the club stand at dog shows and acting as breed ambassadors on many occasions. Their lasting contribution will of course come through the dogs they bred and showed - many of which were UK and International Champions. Many of the dogs in the ring today have Quinoa, Brynlythe or Reeberrich in their lines. The photo shows Ted (4th from left) with his late Wife Shirley, and John (right at the rear) ) at the ETT Club Championship Show in 2018. read more
