Co-ordinator’s Bit Firstly I would like to wish Hannah well in her new venture. She has been working at the kennels with Joanne for the last couple of years and has done a magnificent job both with the dogs and with visitors and volunteers. She has always wanted to work in the NHS and has now got her wish, so good luck Hannah. Taking her place will be Molly, who many of you already know as she has been a volunteer for the last five years. We hope Molly will continue to be happy with us in her new capacity.. Our first Open Day of the year was the usual success with many, many visitors and good weather. This also goes for the first walk at Wolterton Hall, which was lovely and attended by 30+ greyhounds and their owners. However our first outside event at Fakenham Races was wet, muddy and cold. I thank Patch, Cuddles, Rowdy, Marley and their owners for helping and suffering the weather. They did an excellent job. Our page on Facebook is worth a look although there are some very strange people on it who talk about pink pyjamas for greyhounds! It is, however, good for sharing problems, ideas and stories and has a large following. Lynda is always saying about the need for volunteers and we have such a great bunch of people who help us in all sorts of ways. We are looking for more walkers and people to help at the odd event on our stall so don’t be shy just give me, Joanne or Angela a call. Elsewhere in this issue are details about coming events; I hope to see you at one of them.

SOMETHING TO PUT IN YOUR DIARY We have many, many requests to repeat the “Greyhounds In Art” talk by Mary Alexander, which she did two years ago. I am delighted to say that Mary has agreed to give another talk with lots of new material on Friday 5th October 7pm in the stadium restaurant. Tickets will be £5 each and will include a buffet This was such a success last time you must not miss it this time so make a note in your diary. 2013 CALENDAR Our 2013 calendar will feature “Friends” ie photos that include two greyhounds or a greyhound and a friend. If you have or can get a photo of your dog(s) in jpeg or similar form and send to me at jones432@btinternet.com . We will use 12 of them at least! Below is an example as Seth and Hetty are already great friends
