Appeal for the return of missing Trophies

"Over the years The Newfoundland Club has had many lovely trophies that have been kindly donated to the club. Unfortunately with many changes to Trophy Stewards many of these over time have not been returned.

The committee would ask for everyone to share this with members current and old - we are doing a Trophy amnesty and asking for people to check their cupboards and shelves to see if they have any Trophies that might belong to the Club.

If any are found, please returned them to any committee member at any show or event, no questions will be asked.

It would be lovely if we could find all the missing and unaccounted for trophies."
