CHRISTMAS PARTY 12th December 2022 & DOG OF THE YEAR 2022 AWARDS

We held our Christmas Party & Dog of the Year Awards for 2022 on Monday 12th December.

Considering the weather in some parts of the county, we were lucky to be able to go ahead and we had a good turn out, although not as many as expected, some due to the weather, others due to illness.  However, we had a lovely evening, with a Fancy Dress Competition, A huge Raffle, lots of great games and a Buffet.

Heres a selection of photos taken by Gayle Cavie during the evening.  Thank you Gayle

NEW YEAR – NEW VENUE – NEW NIGHT

The Committee are delighted to announce that from January 2022, we have a beautiful new venue.  St Michaels and All Angels Church have agreed to let us use their excellent and spacious hall on Monday evenings.  Whilst we have been very lucky to have the use of Sompting Village Hall, it has sadly proved to be too small for our needs but St Michaels is a much larger hall and of course back in the area we are used to, on the border of Shoreham and Southwick.

Further details to follow.
