The club is deeply saddened today to hear of the sudden death of long standing member Lucinda Hughes. Lucinda will be known to many members, especially those regularly attending the Garden Party where Lucinda had given several Obedience based demonstrations to help members train their dogs. She was always open to assist with behavioural problems and was a constantly friendly face to everyone with a big, happy smile. She often appeared on the breed stand in Discover Dogs at Crufts to just say hello but ended up staying and giving advice to enquirers, using up valuable ‘shopping time’ to help and always happy to chat ‘Bernese’ and always with the trademark smile.

The Bernese world has lost a big friend and our thoughts are with husband Colin and the rest of her family at this very sad time.
