February Walk

Just a reminder that our February walk takes place this Sunday in Mistley.

New meeting point and parking arrangements Mistley Cricket Club, New Road Mistley, Manningtree CO11 1ER. We are grateful to the Cricket club for the use of their parking facilities and we would appreciate a £1 donation to them. Please see walk leaders Mikey and Sharon.

Toilet facilities will be available at Mistley Rugby Club (Furze Hill) or the Tea rooms in Mistley High Street.
There will be both a long and short walk but due to the soggy fields there will be slightly different routes being led.

Highwoods Country Park Walk

Many thanks to Joe and Ann for leading our January walk in Highwoods Country Park yesterday. Approximately 30 dogs came along but unfortunately we didn’t have an official photographer on the walk. If you took any photos you would be happy to share please email them to suffolk@greyhoundtrust.org.uk and we will make an album.

We knew this handsome pair Saving Grace and Saving Sonic would draw your attention to our appeal for photos!

New Years Day 2024

Another glorious day for our New Years Day walk in Stutton.

35+ Greyhounds joined us for refreshments in the hall after the walks including kennel dog Slammer who really enjoyed his trip out and loved meeting everyone.

Thanks to Pat and Gill for the catering, Hannah and Nick for leading the walks, Barb and Gill for the photos and as always everyone who came along to support us.

Boxing Day Walk

The weather was kind for our Boxing Day walk. 70 Greyhounds and 10 other breeds came along including kennel dogs Rusty and Joe who thoroughly enjoyed themselves and behaved impeccably.

We would like to thank those who helped to make the day a success.

Brian Gill and Mary for the catering

The Trustees of Languard Fort for allowing us to use their facilities

Our next walk is on New Years Day. Please meet at 11am in the Community Hall Car Park, Manningtree Road Stutton IP9 2TA.

There are 2 walks a short one of around 30 minutes and a longer one of around 1 hour 15 minutes. Refreshments will be served in the Hall after the walk.

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.
