Updated 14 June 2020

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the trustees have sadly decided to cancel the STECS Summer Party planned for Sunday 2nd August 2020 and which would have been held at the Thompson House Equestrian Centre, Standish.

There are no plans to rearrange the event for later in the year. The owners of the venue have however very kindly agreed to carry over our deposit to next year and the 2021 Summer Party is therefore booked for Sunday 1st August 2021. Please make a note for your diaries.

If you need help with your Scottie during the Coronavirus crisis STECS will do all that we possibly can. If anyone feels isolated with no family close by please get in touch with any of the officers listed on the back page of the Newsletter.  However please remember that our officers and volunteers may themselves be self-isolating or may have succumbed to the virus.

In the event that you may become poorly we suggest that you write down your dogs’ routine especially if any dogs are on medication, and identify each dog if there are multiple dogs in the household. For example, Sally Brindle Bitch, red collar, age 10, 2 meals a day at 8 am 6 pm of mixer and wet food. List the medication for each dog and your vet’s contact details. List the emergency numbers of your friends, family and of STECS – 07891 203 212 (Welfare Officer).

Rest assured that we will do all that we can to keep your dogs safe if you are taken poorly over the coming months. Thank you for your understanding.
