Officers & Committee

President:    Sue Garner (Aivlys)

Sue has been a member of Shoreham Ringcraft for many years.  She has served on many dog show Society Committees over her long career in dogs and awards CCs in quite a number of breeds.  She currently breeds and shows Tibetan Terriers under the Aivlys Affix.

Chairman:   Bridget Meads (Jasbri)

 

I was born into dogs, as my parents were founder members of Worthing & District C. S.   My earliest showing experience was at the age of 4, showing Borzois!  I have shown for most of my life and although my first love was my miniature poodle, whippets have been my constant love.   As well as showing in my breed,  I enjoy teaching and showing in handling classes.  For the past couple of years, I have been involved in Therapy Dogs Nationwide where we “share the love”,  give comfort and confidence, and educate youngsters about animal welfare and safety.

Bridget is our main trainer and currently organises the Outdoor Ringcraft Sessions which we currently hold under strict COVID guidelines.

Treasurer: Pauline Langridge (Calicoe)

Pauline shows beautiful Wire Dachshunds at Open & Championship Shows.  A breed which I believe she has been involved with for some time.  Pauline helps with collecting subs and Match Entries.  She also helps out with the training/handling when required.

Hon. Secretary & Webmaster: Elaine Ward (Pyennebeare/Pipparel) (picture below)

I have owned dogs for over 45 years.  I’ve taken part in Agility, Obedience, Heelwork to Music and KC Good Citizen Dog Scheme to Silver Level.  I’ve owned, bred, shown black miniature poodles for many years, under the Pyennebeare and now the Pipparel affix.   I have competed with my dogs at Open and Championship shows.  In 2019 I’m delighted to say that my first Champion was crowned!   I am on the Poodle Council Breed Judging (B) list as a breed specialist.   I serve as Hon Secretary of West Chiltington Cavaliers, in addition to my duties with Shoreham.  I’ve been a member of Shoreham Ringcraft Club for more than 25 years.  I often help with the handling on Club nights and keep this website up-to-date, in addition to meeting & greeting and collecting subs and match entries.
