Past Events

Below are a few pictures and information about events the branch has held since the 1st January 2018.

SUNDAY 10th JUNE 2018
(This walk is registered with the Great Global Greyhound Walk)

Setting off at 11:00 hours from the car park near the cafe the walk took a route around the fields and woodland surrounding Sizergh Castle. It started and finished at the cafe where everyone met afterwards for a drink, a snack and to let the dogs shelter in the shade under the trees.
We are pleased to announce that 37 greyhounds turned out on what can easily be said was an extremely hot day.  A couple of dogs suffered from the heat but with plenty of water and wet towels to hand they were okay.
13th MAY 2018 - Monthly Walk - Arnside LA5 0HA
11:00 hours. - meeting at the end of the pier under the flagpole

We returned to Arnside after our first attempt in September 2017 was thwarted by torrential rain. This time we had a beautiful day, 36 greyhounds turned up and we managed the full walk. As usual there was a shorter option for those not wanting to do a long walk and the full walk took roughly 1.5 hours.
Various free parking options
were along the promenade and a free car park was opposite the Fish & Chip Cafe on Station Road alongside the estuary. Tea, coffee and cakes were brought by the volunteers and were available afterwards for a donation.  This made us a whopping £65.43 and all the proceeds going towards the care and homing of the greyhounds at the branch.
A big thank you to all who attendended and all who donated the cakes and biscuits to go with the tea and coffee.
