Firstly apologies for the lack of updates on this page, with putting together Spot Press and doing the Covid Catch ups its got pretty neglected so we are going to endeavour to update it at the beginning of every month in synchronisation with the catch up emails.

Summer 21 Spot Press should have hit your doormats and in boxes by now if it hasn’t and you think it should please email and we’ll investigate.

Our next issue will have a tribute to Club founder Richard Lutwyche so If you’ve any articles, anecdotes or photographs to share please send them in either or  

Although the website refurbishment is complete work is continuing on individual pages to bring them to date and more current. Don’t forget the placing of adverts in ‘Marketplace’ is available to ALL pedigree GOS breeders and keepers or anyone looking for GOS pigs. If you have any suggestions for any other changes you would like to see please let us know

We hope a good many of you have now had your 2 doses of covid vaccination and are keeping well.  It’s worth making sure you have in place contingency plans should you or your family become ill and unable to tend to your animals. Please do keep an eye or ear out for those around you who may be struggling with the consequences of this pandemic and keep in touch with each other by phone or email. You don’t need to be a Facebook member to look at the Club’s Facebook page which is updated almost daily find it here.

Make sure we have an up to date e-mail address for you as this is the most speedy and cost effective way of letting you know what’s happening in the GOS world.
