Kennel Club Question Time heads to Stoneleigh

The views of dog owners in the Midlands and surrounding areas are being sought as the Kennel Club’s Question Time event visits Stoneleigh near Coventry on Tuesday 27th February.

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.

It is particularly hoped that attendees will take the opportunity to ask questions about the initiatives which have recently emerged from the Dog Health Group as well as the Dog Show Promotion and Judges Competency Framework working parties.

The event will be held at 7pm on Tuesday 27th February at the Kennel Club Building, Stoneleigh Park, near Coventry, Warwickshire CV8 2LZ.  The building is located just off the A46 dual carriage way which links the M40 (junction 5) with the M69 and M6 (junction 2).

The entrance to Stoneleigh Park is on the B4113 Stoneleigh Road, between Coventry and Leamington Spa. This is accessed via the A46 or A45 by following signs for ‘Stoneleigh’, ‘Stoneleigh Park’ or ‘National Agricultural Centre (NAC)’. As you drive into Stoneleigh Park, the Kennel Club Building is on the left-hand side. Please follow the sign posts to the carpark a short distance from the main gate.

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 6.30pm 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; Steve Croxford, KC Vice Chairman; Mark Cocozza, KC Board member; Rose Smart, KC Chief Executive Officer; Caroline Kisko, KC Secretary; Kathryn Symns, Canine Activities Executive; and Bill Lambert, Health and Breeder Services Manager.

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

To ensure that questions can be tabled on the night, please submit them in advance to James via the same email address.
