WELCOME TO THE UK SOUTHERN CKCS CLUB
The Southern Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club became the sixth regional Cavalier breed club when it was registered on 19 February 1979. The Club now has over 450 members mainly resident in Hampshire, Kent, London South, Berkshire, Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex and Isle of Wight.
The Club runs three shows each year. Our Championship Show is set for the first Saturday in April. Most Club members are Cavalier owners who do not show dogs and the Club offers the following additional activities:
In the Summer, there is a Fun Day / Bar-B-Q with outdoor games, stalls and refreshments. The proceeds go to the Southern CKCS Welfare Organisation.
In the Autumn we run an Open Day (formerly called the Roadshow) which is slightly more serious and offers heart and eye testing by specialists and an opportunity to talk to other owners/breeders on any Cavalier related topic.
We publish "Cavalcade" an annual newsletter or magazine, where we invite contributions from all members and we also offer other seminars and events as required. Our AGM is usually held towards the end of February.
The Southern CKCS Welfare Organisation is run by volunteers to rescue or collect Cavaliers who need a new home (for whatever reason). The Fun Day is particularly geared to attract rescue Cavaliers.
LATEST NEWSThe Southern Club will be postponing the AGM to later in the year. According to the KC this can be done at a time when it is safer to hold such events. We will let you know on due course when this will be. The Health testing planned for 28th February will not happen now until the 21st March. BUT will only go ahead if it is safe to do so and the restrictions are eased. NO BOOKINGS are being taken as yet. We will notify you when these will be accepted and the correct protocols are in place.
The Southern Committee feel that as there is still
such uncertainty regarding Covid 19 and the pandemic is currently progressing
far too quickly. We have therefore taken the decision, along with the judges,
to postpone our CH show which was to be held on the 3rd April 2021. This was to
be our 40th anniversary show and would have been a very special day. We are
looking at alternative dates and will inform you when we have found an
appropriate date which has KC approval.
