Our Nacton Walk

A much nicer day for this months walk. Around 35 hounds joined us for a walk through Orwell Country Park and along Nacton Shore.

Thanks to all who attended, Barb and Gill for the photos and Pete for leading the walk.
Here are a few photos. There are many more on our Facebook page.

Nice Weather for Ducks

What a soggy walk! Such a shame everywhere was flooded and we had to walk back the way we came. But it was nice to all be together and nothing gets us all talking like a bit of adverse weather!

Joining us on our walk was our new Volunteer Richard who walked Bobby. Welcome to the team Richard.

Thanks to everyone who came along, always a pleasure to see you and your lovely hounds. There are more photos on our Facebook page.

Our July Walk

Our July Walk.

Our July walk takes place this evening in Shotley.

Please meet opposite the Shipwreck Bar and Restaurant IP9 1QL at 7pm for a walk along the marina and through the village.

Unfortunately we have no photographer this evening and so if you wouldn’t mind taking some photos of your own and emailing them to avril.park@btinternet.com or suffolk@greyhoundtrust.org.uk it would be much appreciated.

There should be some of our dogs awaiting their forever homes in attendance. A few shots of those would be very welcome.

Felixtowe Walk

6 Greyhounds and their owners braved the weather and joined us for our walk in Felixtowe today.

Thank you to Nigel and Charlotte for leading the walk along the waters edge and to Volunteers Bryan and Gil for providing plenty of cool drinking water.

Our next walk will be on the evening of 28th July in Shotley.

Meet at Shotley Marina near the Shipwreck bar and restaurant for a 7pm start. Let’s hope it’s a bit cooler!

Gus and Mindy Have a Day Out

On Sunday we had our monthly walk and this time we went to Frinton. We were joined by the lovely Gus (Wearing the orange muzzzle) and Mindy(Wearing the yellow muzzle) who are looking for homes and they were so well behaved seeing lots of other dogs and humans. They made lots of new friends and were fantastic ambassadors. The weather was fantastic as was the beach where some hounds and their humans had a great time at the edge of the sea. Many thanks to our walk leader Kirsty and all those who organise these lovely walks.

May Walk

Just a reminder that our May walk takes place this coming Sunday (28th) in Frinton on Sea. Meet at 11am at The Lees Frinton on Sea CO13 9NN for a stroll along the sea front to the Pier.

Pete and Eve will be there selling copies of Peters book about his life in entertainment.

All profit from the sale of the book will directly benefit the retired Greyhounds at Dillymore.

Fingers crossed the nice weather holds.

Hollesley Walk

31 greyhounds joined us for a gloriously sunny walk around Hollesley. Among them was kennel boy Max, who behaved admirably on his first trip out of kennels with us. He walked very well on his lead, didn’t react to two shouty labradors or any of the other dogs he met and loved the attention and cuddles. He might also have learned about crisps …
Thank you to Kevin for leading the walk and to everybody who came along for their company.

April Walk

Just a quick reminder that our April walk takes place this coming Sunday. Meet at 11am at The Shepherd and Dog Car Park Hollesley IP12 3QU.

Our supporters Eve and Peter will be attending and will bring along some of Peters books to sell. All profits will be for the benefit of the retired dogs at Dillymore.

Please remember if you would like to eat at The Shepherd and Dog it is advisable to contact them prior to the walk.

Fingers crossed for a nice day.
Update. Unfortunately Peter and Eve are unable to attend the walk tomorrow but hope to be on our next one in Walton on 28th May.
