The RVWN Christmas meal was held on 2nd December and an enjoyable evening was had by all. It's been a very busy year for us with becoming an independent group, we've also had a very full on schedule for the majority of the year holding & attending numerous working events and not forgetting Newf Fest, so it was a welcome break to celebrate together.
We had the opportunity to thank David Pugsley for his 30+ years of support by gratefully presenting him with his certificate of honorary membership.
We also recognised the dogs & handlers working achievements throughout the year - a full breakdown of winners can be found on our new Trophies & Awards page. A big congratulations goes to all of the winners this year.
More photos from the event can be found in our gallery.
Again -thank you everyone for your support and hard work this year, here's to 2024!
NNC WALK FOR WELFARE 2023
Sunday 12th November 10am @ Whitwell Woods, Worksop, S80 3EE
It's that time of the year again where we get together to raise funds for Newfoundland dogs in need. Join us for a charity dog walk set in beautiful woodland - everyone and all breeds welcome.
There is a £5 donation per family with all proceeds going direct to Northern Newfoundland Club Welfare. Parking is free and there is a small cafe on site for a bite to eat & cuppa.
We will be holding our first draught test of the year at Sherwood Forest on Sunday 5th November. The test will be held under the Northern Newfoundland Club & includes beginners to level 4.
Thank you to Kim Rhodes for agreeing to test manage at this event, it will be her first experience as test manager but we're certain she will do a fantastic job.

Thanks again to Fenland Working Newfoundlands for inviting us along to the annual Baston Fen holiday weekend. The weather was absolutely glorious, if not a bit too hot! The majority of the weekend was spent having fun with the dogs in the lake, along with a bit of scent work and low impact agility when the temperatures allowed.
RVWN are already looking forward to next year! For now that signals the end of Summer events for 2023, but we will continue to train in the water until more Autumnal weather arrives.
