2013 GET-TOGETHER AND SHOW

 The Annual Welsh Bernese Get-Together

 and

All Breeds Companion Dog Show
in aid of
Bernese Welfare UK
took place on 8th June 2013
at Llys Derwen, Fford Bryngwyn, LLanrug, Caernarfon,
Gwynedd LL55 4RD

 

And what a fantastic day it was!
The weather forecast promised warm, sunny weather and clear blue sky
and that is exactly what was delivered!

This is the 15th year that the event has been held and the legendary 'Bethan Jones' Welsh Welcome'
enticed over 50 Bernese to attend with their owners plus 18 carts took part in the competition and display making a wonderful, colourful spectacle for everyone to enjoy.
The Companion Dog Show classes were well filled with dogs of all breeds, shapes and sizes
and the spacious venue provided a relaxing opportunity to enjoy the sun and beautiful surroundings
which also has plenty of shade for those who prefer to be a little cooler.
Lots of Bernese folk camped on-site for several days before and after the main event
and everyone pitched in to help set up the show, ensured everything that needed doing on the day
was done and then disassembled everything afterwards.

We would like to thank everyone who gave their energy, time, goodwill and money(!) to support this event. Lots of people had made things to sell, donated items for sale and dipped into their pockets
to ensure the tombola, raffles, competitions and refreshments raised lots of cash.
Many who could not attend made donations.
All the prizes, trophies, rosettes and all the other expenses associated with running a show 
were donated and/or sponsored by well wishers
enabling every penny raised to directly benefit needy Bernese.

I am delighted to announce that the total raised at this event was
A WONDERFUL, INCREDIBLE £2600!
and a possibility that a couple of pledges made but not yet received may increase that amount further.
A fantastic achievement and a very satisfying result for Bethan, her family
and all her willing helpers and all those who loyally support this friendly, annual event!
Lots of needy Bernese will be very grateful to you.  Thank you all so much.

Thank you to all those who provided these photos
