Dear Members

At the Annual General Meeting held on Sunday 1st April it was announced that the position of Chair of the Club was vacant because no nominations had been received.

Friday 4th May 2018          Deadline for return of ballot papers.

Sunday 6th May 2018        Committee Meeting.

Nominees for Chairperson must be fully paid up Members of the Clumber Spaniel Club for a period of not less than five years and must sign to accept the nomination. All nominations must be proposed and seconded by fully paid up Members of the Clumber Spaniel Club.

Forms (link below) should be accompanied with a supporting statement from the nominee which will be printed on the ballot form. Nominees are requested to limit their statement to approximately 200 words.

All nomination forms and supporting CVs must be received by the Hon Secretary no later than Monday 16th April 2018 and should either be sent to Mrs E King, 57 Elliott Drive, Inkersall, Chesterfield, S43 3DZ or e-mailed to in a Word document format please.

The World Of Clumbers International Book

Some of you will have seen this international book on Clumbers covering the years 2000-15 is now underway. Ian Layfield and James Taylor are splitting the UK work.
The first priority is the Champions gallery. Ian has completed the list of UK Clumbers made-up between 2000-15. They will all be named in the book but there is also the opportunity for them to appear with a photo and 3 generation pedigree, free of charge. Hopefully everyone can be included but the publishers may need to ballot if space becomes an issue. I will be contacting the relevant people over the coming days, but you can also start contacting James if your dog(s) became a champion in those years.

***What we don’t have is a list of Clumbers bred in the UK who became Champions overseas between 2000 and 2015, so please get in touch if you know such dogs.***

There is also the opportunity to advertise current kennel successes/ details. Please see the flyer below. James & Ian are attempting to get prices in £sterling but the attached flyer shows the pricing in Euros. James via Facebook or if you would like his email address please drop an email through to and we will be happy to provide it.
