The club was started by Wiltshire based Dave Tucker and Dave Wilkinson, who found themselves rushing from work to group training events and travelling as far as Bristol or Berkshire. The two Daves recognised a need to have a society a little closer to home. So, after several meetings with friends in Dave Tucker’s house the club was formed . The first Chairman was Terry Chapman. Soon after this, training events were introduced and the club went on to gain Kennel Club status.
Since then the club has grown and flourished with and currently has around 600 members. In the early days it also included minority breeds and HPR. Due to smaller numbers in these breeds however, our focus in recent times has turned to spaniels and retrievers . The club’s continued success depends very much on the support of willing volunteers.
