Chair and Officers
|Christine Bodman - VICE-CHAIR|
|Christine was elected to the Committee at the 2010 AGM. She has been showing dogs for about forty years, starting with Rough Collies and then Bernese Mountain dogs. Christine's first Newfoundland in 1989 was from the Stormsail kennel. She now has three, two of which were home bred. Christine has judged and been on Canine Society committees in the past and we are very pleased to have her on the SNC committee.|
|Angela has owned Newfies since 1990 and enjoyed most of this time showing them with continued success. Her love for the breed is shared with husband John and currently own two males. Both have also enjoyed swimming their dogs and plan to return to the water and train for fun.|
|In Helen's words ... "I have been owned by Newfoundlands since 1998 and at the moment have two. Just started showing again but would love to swim them. They live with a Poodle, Shihtzu and Portuguese Water Dog. I have been on the committee of the local ringcraft and enjoy obedience classes. I am a dog groomer so my whole world involves dogs."|
|Sandy is also our Trophy secretary. 'Bio' to follow.|
|Loretta 'accidently' discovered Newfoundlands in 1980 and fell in love with breed. She has shown and breed three litters and at the moment owns two Newfoundlands (one of which is a welfare dog) and a Border Terrier. Both Newfoundlands have participated at carting events and, like most Newfoundlands, enjoy swimming. Loretta is also a volunteer for the Greyhound Trust.|
Suzanne has owned Newfoundlands since 1987 and has been showing her dogs continuously for the past 30 years and has been involved with Water work too. Awarding CCs in the breed, Suzanne has been a Championship judge since 2007.
Suzanne is also a successful breeder and is the Administrator of our Better Breeders Scheme. She lives with six of her home-bred Newfoundlands in Hampshire and was co-opted onto the committee in 2016.
|We are pleased Caroline has joined the main committee and we will add a bit of a 'bio' here soon.|
