Many thanks to all the volunteers and hounds who turned up on Sunday 17th May for the M&G at RHS Wisley Garden. The weather was kind and, in the morning, we benefited from coach loads of people coming to visit the Garden at the beginning of Chelsea Flower Show week.

Many visitors were local and we gave out almost all the Kennels Open Day leaflets we had. Let’s hope that will contribute to an enthusiastic crowd at Open Day.

We also bit our bit for international relations by holding out a hand (or perhaps, paw) across the sea to several overseas visitors, including a group of dog-friendly Austrians.I know that several of the volunteers had spent the previous day at an M&G in Windsor. The kennel hounds are very lucky to have such devoted human friends.
