The 2017 Show season is over but now planning starts for 2018. There are pig classes at many shows now and the Club has a comprehensive list which will be updated as the 2018 dates come in. See here http://www.gospbc.co.uk/shows/ Its a really great opportunity to get your herd seen & known and promote the GOS breed so why not have a go at a show local to you.
The Club is actively looking for new committee members. The committee meets only 2 or 3 times a year at a time & place mutually convenient usually at Stoneleigh Agricultural Centre. It oversees the running of the Club. If you feel you can bring some skills/help/ideas to the committee please contact Club Secretary Marlene Renshaw.

Some of the changes to the website are starting to come on line the most noticable being that placing adverts is available only to paid up members now. An additional benefit of being a club member. The ‘main forums’ have also been changed to member viewing only whilst ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ and ‘Health & Welfare’ and ‘Marketplace’ remain open to public viewing and allow member participation. If you have any suggestions for any other changes please let us know email@example.com
Check out the Members Contact page which has now been updated as far as is possible. If you are not on it and want to be or information needs to be corrected – use the form at the top of that page to let us know or drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
A standing order mandate can be downloaded from the members area. Once its set up you needn’t worry about renewal again and it means we won’t spend time chasing you to renew. You can also set up a standing order from an online banking account using the details from the form. Every little helps!
