Change of Venue. Due to the Orwell Challenge being organised on the same day as our walk we have had to change the venue. We will now be meeting at Shotley Marina, opposite the Shipwreck Bar and Restaurant IP9 1QJ. The duration of the walk which will take in stunning views of the river and surrounding countryside will be approximately 1 hour depending how much chatting and catching up with one another we do along the way. We are so looking forward to seeing you all.
Our first walk, assuming the lifting of restrictions goes according to Government plans will take place at Orwell Country Park. Bridge Wood car IP10 0JS on Sunday 27th June at 11am
The walk will last just over an hour, maybe longer as we will all be catching up with one another and chatting along the way. We can’t wait to see you all.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
