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.







It is with regret and disappointment that due to the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 virus plus travel restrictions faced by the Speaker, both committees of the NPPA and the PPCGB have 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, unless they request a refund.

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