September Walk Cancelled

Despite the fact that everyone who attended our last walk at Shotley in August acted sensibly and within the then government Covid – 19 guidelines we are forced to cancel our September walk at Hollesley because we cannot find a way around the 6 people rule.We are so sorry to all who had intended to come along but the last thing we would want apart from anybody falling ill is for anybody to face a fine.Disappointed doesn’t come close but we will organise another walk just as soon as we are legally allowed. In the meantime we send good wishes to you all and thank you for the fantastic support you all give us.

Great Global Greyhound Walk

Unfortunately the Great Global Greyhound Walk scheduled for 4th October has been cancelled. We are sorry for those who have worked so hard organising this event, sourced and made merchandise and for the charities who would have benefited from the profits and donations received.Our next walk is on Sunday 27th September in Hollesley, please see What’s on for details.We will be holding an October walk, probably towards the end of the month but the date and location are to be finalised.

Shotley Walk 2020

We were joined by 36 Greyhounds including kennel dog Bramble Taylor and one companion for our first walk since February. It was great to catch up with you all. Many thanks to The Shipwreck who welcomed us before and after the walk. Our next walk will be in Hollesley on Sunday 27th September, details can be found on here under Whats on.

Mistley Walk

Our Greyhounds are a hardy bunch, undeterred by the wind and the rain around 40 of them joined in our walk today. Kennel dogs Taylor (Bramble Taylor), Whizz (Whizzy Devil), Harry Brown (Knockhard Spring) and Boysie (Itsurboy) came along and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Many thanks to Mistley Place Park cafe for your hospitality.

New Years Day Walk

71 Greyhounds and 6 of their companions joined us for our New Years Day walk in Stutton. Kennel dogs Lulu, Dave, Taylor and Mickey came along to. Many thanks to Pat and everyone who provided the refreshments, those who helped to set up and clear the hall and of course to everyone who joined us and made such generous donations.

Boxing Day Walk

A couple of photos from the Fort Landguard end a very soggy Boxing Day walk!. 65 greyhounds and their owners braved the elements, but not all made it to the end, and we don’t blame you at all! Kennel dogs Rambo, George and Moses joined us and of course behaved admirably. Thanks for all who made tea, coffee, sausage rolls and mince pies, they were much needed! Huge thanks to all at Fort Landguard for letting us use your facilities today, the shelter was very welcome.

Felixstowe Walk

Many thanks to Mark for organising and leading our walk today and for Chris the Warden at Languard Point for his help. In total 58 hounds and their companions took part in today’s walk including kennel dogs Kevin, Paul and Mickey who endeared themselves to everyone.

Hollesley walk

Thank you Kevin for leading us around a muddy walk from Hollesley, and for the 23 intrepid greyhounds (along with two companion dogs) for ignoring the weather forecast for a mostly dry walk!
Matty joined us from kennels and enjoyed meeting new friends and funny-shaped dogs.
Thanks also to all at the Shepherd and Dog for your hospitality after the walk – under new ownership from today, we wish you every success.
