Welcome to The British Chihuahua Club
2018 Open Show (Entries have now closed)
Entries are now closed for our Open Show, to be held on 6th May at Brackley Leisure Centre in

2018 Annual General Meeting
Our 2018 AGM took place on Sunday 25th March. Mr Graham Foote, who took over the role of Chairman during 2004,
stepped down at the AGM and Mrs Shelda Hornby was appointed as Chairman in his place, while Mr Foote becomes
As seen in the picture, Mr Foote was presented with a rare orchid and a special Club
ceramic mug. Our previous Hon Secretary Mr Adrian Bickers also resigned from the Committee, and Mr
James Culverhouse has agreed to become Secretary. Bernard Coxhead remains as Treasurer and we welcome two
new members who were co-opted onto the committee, Mrs Vicky Osborne and Miss Hazel Senior.
The other important matter dealt with at the AGM was an amendment to our rulebook. Members present
voted to accept the proposed changes. Subject to Kennel Club approval, the club's financial year will in future run
from 1st April to 31st March, and the AGM will take place within 3 months of the new year-end. It's hoped we can
hold future AGMs at our Open Shows, which are held in May, hopefully encouraging many more members to take part.
