Re: The Norbern News (Club Magazine)

The Committee have asked me to let you know that they are trying to promote a new initiative for our Club Magazine, which is hoped will start to reflect more of an emphasis towards our Members and their Dogs, as it is being transformed into a Newsletter for the Club.

Obviously, to achieve this we need more help/input from our membership as a whole, to try and correlate any related anecdotes and stories about your own dogs, be it: 
at home/on holiday, Dog Carting, Showing your BMD’s, or health issues you may have personally encountered in the breed.

We would really appreciate your help in this matter. 

Articles and photo’s can be sent direct by Email to either
Marian Scott 
Chris Jeffries
or
myself, Ian Parkinson 

or by post, using the clubs latest “Members Address Book” as a point of reference.

We hope you will participate in trying to make this a great success and look forward to hearing from you.

	Many thanks, Ian Parkinson 
(Webmaster, on behalf of the NBMDC Committee)

Text Box: It is with a very saddened heart I have to inform you all of the death of:

Lesley Bostock (nee: Hudson) Begaville
1945 - 2017

Russell kindly informed me from their home in France that Lesley sadly passed away in Hospital after a short illness on Monday afternoon, 6th November 2017. 
Her funeral was held at a local French Church on Monday 13th November 2017 with many local friends she had made over there in France attending.
Needless to say, I have given Russell our sincere condolences personally and also from our Club too. 
Especially seeing that Lesley had been involved with the Northern Bernese Mountain Dog Club from its inception and also Lesley and Russell were both keen Committee Members before leaving for France some years ago.
On a more personal note, I am so proud to be able to call both of them my very dear and close friends for many years and know how much they both meant to each other and how happy they were with their idyllic French lifestyle they chose for themselves.

We will miss her so much

At the 2017 NBMDC SuperLeague Finals on the 18th November 2017 we held one minute of silence in memory of Lesley, which was followed by a large round of applause from everyone there on the day, as a mark of respect and love for this very special lady.
