Once again we were blessed with lovely weather for our second social event of 2019 on Sunday 8th September - a Warwickshire countryside walk, followed by a BBQ.

We started with a walk around Ryton Pools Country Park near Stoneleigh, which saw over 20 Airedales gather for a stroll in the early autumn sunshine.  Following this everyone made their way to nearby Baginton Village Hall for the BBQ.  This was a new venue for the club, and everyone agreed that it was a very good indeed.

As it was such a beautiful day, we sat outside on the grass at the rear of the hall in the sunshine to enjoy burgers and hot dogs, home made soup and a variety of puddings.  Whilst the food was being served there was a general knowledge quiz, which was won by narrowest of margins by Merlot and her humans Steve & Gaynor – well done to them!  We held a raffle with lots of lovely prizes, many of which were donated by club members - and our sales stall was busy selling Christmas cards and calendars and all things Airedale related. 

 We were also pleased to welcome some potential Airedale owners who had asked if they could come along to meet the dogs in person and find out more about our breed.  They chatted to many of our members whilst meeting lots of Airedales who were of course all keen to say hello!  We finished the day with an impressive line up of owners and Airedales gathering for a group photograph and then everyone received a goody bag with both human and doggy treats to take home with them.

Thanks as always to our hardworking committee members for all their help with the organisation both on the day and beforehand, especially with the catering - and for doing a great job keeping everyone fed and watered on the day.  We had some very nice feedback and thanks from our members to say how much they had enjoyed the day, which makes it all worthwhile!  And of course thank you from the committee to everyone who attended, your continued support for the club is much appreciated.

Photos to follow - we currently have a technical issue with our web software - apologies.
