It is with regret and disappointment that due to the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 virus plus travel restrictions faced by the Speaker, the committee of the NPPA has come to a decision to postpone the planned Breed Appreciation Day until NEXT YEAR. See below 

This decision was not taken lightly, but it was agreed that in order to maintain the same Speaker from Portugal and with the enforced cancellation of events it was best to postpone.

All candidates who have already booked have been advised of the revised date and will of course have their place guaranteed on the revised date or they can ask for a refund.

The Officers and committee of the NPPA wish to extend their sincerest apologies and hope you can understand and accept the difficult situation.
