29 August 2020: “It is with sadness that I received the news from Wendy Cullen that her sister, Lynda, had died at the weekend.  She had been suffering from cancer for some time.  Lynda was one of those people who do not make a big noise but who frequently form the backbone of small Clubs and Societies, working hard behind the scenes,  always reliable and invaluable when asked to step up,  help with the catering and man the occasional bric-a-braq table.     Although Lynda did not show cockers she had been involved with the Club for many years with Wendy and indeed she became our Treasurer in 2012.  She will be very much missed by us at Devon & Cornwall Cocker.
With the Covid situation and the restrictions on attendance at funerals, it will be family only and our sympathy and thoughts are with them.”

The Club has made a donation to St Margaret’s Hospice, Taunton where Lynda spent her last days.

Sunday 22nd July: Fun Show - we were blessed with the dry weather and considering the number of other Shows held on the day, the Show was well supported; the Judge, steward and committee held up well in the heat ; and the exhibitors were sensible with their dogs, keeping them in the shade of the trees.

With a small mountain of prizes and awards donated for the class and main winners, I hope everyone who turned up was pleased they had and perhaps the word will get around for next time !

The winner of the Best Pedigree was a black cocker spaniel; Best Puppy a Staff; Best Novelty - a handsome dog named Chief; Reserve Best Novelty; Dixie and Best Novelty Puppy - Chloe.

The Club appreciates the support of both exhibitors and "helpers".

Many thanks,

Sally
