WELCOME TO THE UK SOUTHERN CKCS CLUB
The Southern Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club became the sixth regional Cavalier breed club when it was registered on 19 February 1979. The Club now has over 450 members mainly resident in Hampshire, Kent, London South, Berkshire, Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex and Isle of Wight.
The Club runs three shows each year. Our Championship Show is set for the first Saturday in April. Most Club members are Cavalier owners who do not show dogs and the Club offers the following additional activities:
In the Summer, there is a Fun Day / Bar-B-Q with outdoor games, stalls and refreshments. The proceeds go to the Southern CKCS Welfare Organisation.
In the Autumn we run an Open Day (formerly called the Roadshow) which is slightly more serious and offers heart and eye testing by specialists and an opportunity to talk to other owners/breeders on any Cavalier related topic.
We publish "Cavalcade" an annual newsletter or magazine, where we invite contributions from all members and we also offer other seminars and events as required. Our AGM is usually held towards the end of February.
The Southern CKCS Welfare Organisation is run by volunteers to rescue or collect Cavaliers who need a new home (for whatever reason). The Fun Day is particularly geared to attract rescue Cavaliers.
