Just print off one of the application forms and send to our membership secretary Chris Sheldon. We look forward to welcoming you into our setter family.


Given the latest guidance and information on Covid-19, it left us with no option but to cancel our show on the 28th of March.

The latest information on our show is that we have negotiated with Newark and it is now hoped that we will hold our Championship Show and Sybil Lennox Memorial Open Show together on the 28th November 2020. Further details will be posted as we know them. (21/03/20)

To anyone who entered Just to let you know that anyone who paid their entries by cheque should receive their refund in the next few days. All refunds have been sent out in the post today. 

Anyone who made an online entry via Higham Press will receive their entry fees back electronically as soon as Higham can deal with the refund in the current climate. You will receive the full amount back that you paid for entries and catalogue without any admin charge.

We are very grateful to the many people who offered that we keep their entry fee but due to  the logistics over the refunds, we haven’t done that, you will get your money back. A big thank you for the gesture though, in these difficult times, it is appreciated 🙂

We hope that when the show is rescheduled later in the year, you will again support us to make it a fantastic show. We will let you know more details in due course.

Due to the current situation with Coronavirus it is necessary to postpone our AGM that was due to take place on 2nd May 2020.  As soon as we are able to hold the AGM you will be notified of the rearranged date.

Hon Secretary.
