Felixstowe Christmas Fair

Well done to our Volunteers for braving the elements at the Felixstowe light up and craft fair day today. Our trusty Greyhound Ambassadors were wrapped up well in their coats and snoods and in spite of the sub zero temperatures as always did us proud.

Thank you to Ali for the home made dog treats and to her Mum for the knitted snoods both of which sold well.

A Couple of Dates for your Diary

Hadleigh Cricket Club Christmas Fair Saturday 18th November. 10am to 3pm Hadleigh Cricket Club , Friars Road, Hadleigh IP7 6DF

Come along and visit us at our stall where there will be some of our Greyhound Ambassadors for you to meet. The fair will have festive items for sale and a tombola as well as a bar.

Felixstowe Light Up Day and Christmas Fair Saturday 2nd December 10 am to 4pm. Hamilton Road, Felixstowe IP11 7AD

Come along and see us and our Greyhound Ambassadors at the fair where we will have craft and Christmas themed items along with delicious homemade dog treats for sale.There will be lots of stalls lining Hamilton Road as well as live music, a choir and many other attractions. The lighting up ceremony we believe is at 5pm but we will close our stall at 4pm because we expect the area for the ceremony to be packed which might be a little overwhelming for the dogs.

Woodbridge Fete.


Due to the high winds forecast for the weekend the Woodbridge branch of the Royal British Legion have cancelled their summer fete.

It’s a shame because we were looking forward to taking part and meeting old friends and new but of course it’s better to be safe than sorry.

February Walk

Just a reminder that our February walk takes place this Sunday in Mistley. Please see the walks section for all details.

Hot weather, Blue Cross open day, Stutton walk/picnic

It is with regret that due to the hot weather we have decided to cancel our attendance at the Blue Cross open day. The event itself is still going ahead, we wish then every success but as always the welfare of our dogs must come first.
We will however go ahead with the Stutton / Alton Water picnic because we have hired the hall so the dogs don’t need to be outside. We can each take a view on the day regarding actually walking.

Charity Golf Day

Huge thanks to Chris Waters for organising another fundraising golf day at Brett Vale Golf Club on 22nd September. Non-golfers are also welcome for BBQ and music in splendid surroundings. See our events page for full details.

A Fantastic Event

Another great quiz night last night with £749 being raised to help our retired hounds find their forever families. Thank you so much to all who were able to come along and support us. Special thanks to Leigh and Veronica for organising this event for us again, to Simon the Quiz Master and the team at Seckford Golf Club for hosting the event.
