The Special puppy and Intermediate tests were held on Sunday 15th April at Upper Birtley, Haslemere by kind permission of Sir Graham Wilkinson.  The Club’s thanks go to him, to Roy Rapley for all his assistance, to the Judges and all the helpers. The judges were Barry Taylor, Liz Taylor, Mell Brooks and Liz Barnes who kindly stepped in at the last moment to replace Gay Marshall. Despite the forecast the rain held off until after the test was over.  An album of photos from the Test is now on the Facebook page.
