📌 Dyddiadur/Diary 2021: POSTED

Copies of the CCDGC/NWSDS 2021 digital trials diary have been sent to all members on our 2021 list (those that paid in 2020). If you have still to pay your 2021 subscription can you please do so as soon as possible – details are on page 4 of the diary.

It has been emailed as a .pdf file to save and read on a phone or print. If you would like to have a hard copy posted please contact the secretary.

The trustees respectfully ask that you do not share copies with non-members as this will have an adverse impact on our numbers and income. It you know someone who would like to become a member details are on our website.

There are more trials entered in the diary than we expected and we are grateful for the continued support. All are of course subject to the Covid-19 regulations applicable at the time. Any amendments, cancellations or additions will be posted on our website and Facebook page as normal. Members who are in our Facebook private group will receive prior notice of any additions.

  • this facility is exclusively for responsible sheepdog sales between members and associated ISDS members.
  • the additional workload may mean limiting the number of adverts running at one time.
  • NWSDS reserves the right to remove this facility or refuse to accept specific adverts at any time.

A .jpeg of your advert and a copy of any links e.g.
