ASSOCIATION !!!!

It is with regret that due to the Coronavirus scare the NPPA Annual General Meeting has been postponed. The Open Show has now been re-scheduled. More information below.

 

 

THE JOINT PORTUGUESE PODENGO BREED APPRECIATION DAY POSTPONED YET AGAIN!!!!  

 

IT HAS NOW BEEN RE-RE-RE-SCHEDULED.

FOR MORE DETAILS SEE

BELOW.   


BREED APPRECIATION DAY ORGANISED JOINTLY BY 

THE NORTHERN PORTUGUESE PODENGO ASSOCIATION AND 

THE PORTUGUESE PODENGO CLUB OF GREAT BRITAIN  

It is with much regret that the current Covid -19 situation, and the uncertainty that it has caused, has brought the joint committees to the conclusion that a further postponement of the Breed Appreciation Day for Portuguese Podengos is necessary.  

The restrictions on foreign travel both from and to Portugal, make it almost impossible for the Clubs and the two celebrities (Gabriela and Vitor Veiga), from Portugal to make any firm plans at present for the remainder of this year.  

For that reason, it has been decided to postpone until Sunday the 15th May 2022.  

If, for any reason, anybody who has already applied to attend and wishes to withdraw from participation, please let us know, and we will re-imburse you your full payment, but we sincerely hope that you will be patient, bear with us, and wish to still be educated on our wonderful breed, by one of the very top exponents in Portuguese Podengos.  

It is possible that a very few vacancies may occur over time, so, if you were thinking of applying to attend but did not get round to it, please contact us (anjuskar@outlook.com) and we shall be pleased to put you on our waiting list. 

With very best wishes on behalf of the NPPA and PPCofGB.  

Rob dunning – Vice Chairman, the Northern Portuguese Podengo Association.

MERIEL HATHAWAY 
 

Our dear late President and friend Meriel Hathaway passed away in the early hours of Tuesday 31st March 2015.

Our thoughts remain with her husband Fred, her close friend Andrew Brace and all whose lives she touched; a lady of great strength, dignity and grace.

Rest well Meriel, it was a privilege to have known you.

Taken in happier days - the Xmas Party at Newark 2011.
Meriel was always very supportive of the NPPA & took a very active role as President. Her absence was felt very strongly at our AGM, an event which Meriel attended each year. We were very lucky to be able to have her within the NPPA.
A great lady in every way, who was very stoic in her approach to ill health. She will leave a huge gap and will be very sadly missed by everyone who knew her.

 

                        JOHN DAVID BELLENIE 

THE NPPA IS SAD TO ANNOUNCE THE PASSING OF ONE OF ITS LONG STANDING COMMITTEE MEMBERS - JOHN BELLENIE - AFTER A LONG SPELL OF ILLNESS.

JOHN WILL BE VERY SADLY MISSED BY THE NPPA. HIS FELLOW COMMITTEE MEMBERS AND OFFICERS WOULD LIKE TO THANK HIM FOR HIS UNERRING CONTRIBUTION TO THE ASSOCIATION, IN PARTICULAR TO THE REVENUE HE WAS ABLE TO GENERATE WHILST RUNNING THE BREED STALL.

THE ASSOCIATION OFFERS ITS SINCERE CONDOLENCES TO HIS WIFE, TRISH, AND HIS GRANDDAUGHTER, JASMINE, BOTH MEMBERS OF THE NPPA, AND TO THE REST OF HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS. 

RIP JOHN.
