2nd APRIL 2017
Kent, Surrey & Sussex Labrador Retriever Club have kindly invited Labrador Rescue South East & Central to have a stand at their championship show in April.
Please come along and say hello to Derek Roff, Marion Clayton & Steve & Margaret Waller Area Coordinators for the Kent area, and spend some money on our stand as well as seeing some gorgeous dogs strut their stuff.
The show will be open from 9.30 until 3.30 and everyone is welcome. Dogs are allowed in the car park and along the river bank, but not in the hall itself.
Please note, dogs that are not entered into the show will not be allowed into the building.
The address is Market Hall, Lockmeadow, Maidstone, Kent ME16 8LW
CRUFTS, BIRMINGHAM GUNDOG DAY – SATURDAY 11 MARCH
Would you like to help promote the charity and see Crufts at the same time – help man the stand for at least two hours and in exchange we will give you a free entry ticket.
We have space on the Kennel Club Breed Rescue Stand and need about 6 people and 4 dogs on the stand. It will be talking to the public about Labradors and of course promoting the charity. They’ll want to hear your own personal story about how you got your Labrador and poss any problems you have had and how you overcame them. Dont forget to tell them all the good points as well.
Our second stand will be downstairs beside the Labrador ring. We will have some items to sell but will mainly be promoting our 100 club (lab lottery) and also the Welfare Fund so we need people that are willing to help the public part with their hard earned cash!

A message from our Chairman
Following much deliberation and lengthy discussion about bits and bytes I am delighted to welcome you to the new LRSE&C website and would encourage you to have a look around. Much is the same but we are brighter and bolder and now available to be accessed by smart phones which I was informed was vital in our modern times. I did question whether a smart phone would instinctively know when it was time for dinner or become ludicrously over-exited when I reach for the leads in the cupboard. I rather suspect if the manufacturers could get the phone to seem so joyously happy to see me whenever I have been away even if just for a few minutes then sales would soar but I do understand that there are things a Smart phone can do that a Labrador can’t and to be fair I shall never have to clean up after my smart phone.
Despite the technology, LRSE&C is a “people and pets” charity with a large group of friendly volunteers always trying their hardest to help in whatever way we can to unite dogs in need with loving forever homes. We can always use extra help and you will provide a perfect Christmas present this December if you have time to call one of our co-ordinators and say” I could possibly help”, volunteering can be extremely rewarding and I understand good for our health and mental well-being and whether you can offer one lift for a dog to the vets in a year or have ambitions to be the next chairman then do please let us know, if you have any time to give to our wonderful breed then you will be welcome.
The website has taken a great deal of collective effort and I hope very much you will ‘interact with it’, of course I have no idea what that means but it seemed to be a key point that kept coming up in the discussions. 🙂
