Very sadly, I received a telephone call this morning from the son of Ann Francis, saying that our Life Member, and Honorary Vice President passed away yesterday. Many of our newer members wouldn’t have known Ann, but she will be well remembered by many for her love of the club, and her beautiful dogs she had bred under the Addislea affix.

Ann bred four champions, and did the double at Crufts in 1980 with Dog Ch. Addislea Yanagi, and Bitch Ch. Addislea Yanina. She also bred Ch. Addislea Yanusha, owned by Brian Mitchell, and Ch. Addislea Yoshimi, owned by Mrs Conilin Roe.
In 1994, Ann judged at Crufts, with her main winners being Amantra Kotaro of Sangria, and Sweitenna Evette. At what was her last judging appointment, at Darlington in 2007, she awarded the double to Sangria Silver Bullet & Sangria Fabiola. Sadly, through ill health, Ann retired from judging. Rest in Peace Ann

It is with much sadness that we learn of the passing of Mrs Pat Clarke of Lanceian Japanese Chins on the 17th May 2020.  Pat had sadly suffered from ill health for many years and after an accident being hospitalised  contracted Coronavirus.  Our sincere condolences go to her friends & family at this sad time. 

Dear Members,


It is with regret that we have no option but to cancel our Summer Show on 18th July 2020.

We have informed our judge Mr Derfel Owen, who is obviously disappointed, as are the committee, and no doubt our members are too, especially as this is the 125th Anniversary of the clubs formation and we were hoping to make it a very special one,  but our prime concern is for the safety & wellbeing of everyone. Derfel has been offered our first available show, and we hope that he will be able to accept.


We are currently in discussions regarding the championship show and will post when we have more information and a decision has been made.  But until then, we hope that everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather still keeping safe and well and thank you all for your continued support of the club in times where there is so much uncertainty.
