Kennel Club Question Time Heads to Belfast

12 September 2016    16:00

Views are being sought from dog owners in Northern Ireland as the Kennel Club’s Question Time event returns to Belfast this September.

The Kennel Club’s Question Time evenings aim to give dog owners the opportunity to air their views, ask questions and find out about the latest issues that may affect them and their dogs. Hosted by the Kennel Club, organisers of the world’s greatest dog show, Crufts, Question Time events have been held throughout the UK for over a decade, with the last one held in Belfast in 2013.

The event will be held at 7pm on Wednesday 28th September at the Hastings Stormont Hotel, 587 Upper Newtownards Road, Belfast, BT4 3LP. The session will offer the opportunity for anyone to air their views and question the Kennel Club Chairman and other senior representatives from the organisation. The event is free for all and guests are invited to arrive from 6.15pm for tea and coffee.

The Kennel Club hopes to engage with dog owners and encourage them to ask any questions, share thoughts and ideas and encourage dialogue with the Kennel Club about how everyone can work together to promote dogs in a positive light.

The panel members at the Question Time will include: Simon Luxmoore, Kennel Club Chairman; Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary and Communications Director; Kathryn Symns, Canine Activities Team Executive; Bill Lambert, Health and Breeder Services Manager; and Mark Cocozza from the Kennel Club General Committee.

The event is free of charge but places must be booked in advance. Contact Sue Sampson to reserve a place or by phone on 01296 318540.
