Here at Wiltshire Working Gundog Society we are excited to launch our new Society website. We have busy working on this and wanted to launch it prior to The West of England Game Fair. Look carefully and you may be even spot your very own retriever or spaniel featuring on the website from a recent trial, test or training event.
For current members we would like the website to be a first port of call to find out about our events, training, Tests and Trials that we run. For prospective members we hope the website will provide a window into finding out a little more about our Society, see our Become a member page – for how to join.
We hope that for all it be easy for all to navigate and that our interactive and downloadable forms on our Forms page, will help members when entering our Tests and Trials. Also helping Secretaries to be able to clearly read your details – making sure it is your dog’ s correctly spelt name that appears on the day.
You will notice featured in the navigation bar is a News section. Here we hope to keep members up to date with Society News, but also to give members a platform where all can share their news, stories and images too. If you would like to share a story – simply go to the Get in Touch page and contact me (by selecting Website and Communication Secretary) in the drop down bar. Note: this is the best way to contact other secretaries too – simply select from the drop down bar who you would like to talk to and write your message.
Our Results page likewise will feature the latest results from our Tests and Trials.
We would also like to thank our dedicated committee members who have given up huge amounts of time to project manage the site build, web designers Damteq and some exceedingly talented and supportive photographers who have given us permission to use their beautiful images. This includes Darren Cordingley, Society member Kit Williams and Ben Cole.
Darren even gave up a morning of his time – to do a homepage photo shoot . Talking of which it would be remiss not to thank our beautiful models – Becky and Steve Mundy, Tom, India, Sebastian Eastman and Jim Penaliggon – and “the dogs”, for being so obliging and incredibly well behaved (well the dogs at least!)
We do hope you are as thrilled with our new website as we are and we would love to hear your feedback.
With very best wishes
(Communications and Website Secretary)
