Online Auction in aid of Welfare

We have been kindly donated some draught and waterwork training equipment, which has led to us plan an online auction.

If during the lockdown you have been cleaning like mad and emptying all your cupboards, attics and sheds and you aren't sure what to do with all the equipment and other newfy stuff you have acquired over the years, well ... perhaps we can raise some money for Welfare with it.

The Club have set up a Facebook page where you can upload photographs of your unwanted pictures, books, jewellery, equipment or any suitable any big dog related items.

Go to the page using the link above and 'JOIN THE GROUP'. Once joined, find ALBUMS (should appear under the banner though on some phones and computers you may have to look under MEDIA first). You can then upload pictures of the goods you are donating to the auction under the relevant heading. Just one photo per item with a short description, please (you can add further photos in the comments if you wish}.

To bid on an item, simply leave your bid in the comments under the relevant photo. Payments by the sucessful bidder at the end of the auction should be made via Paypal to - please use 'friends and family' setting.

The auction will run from 01 October to 14 October. Don’t forget to share the details with all your friends, so no one misses out and hopefully we will raise lots of money for the Club's Welfare funds.

(including Nov 2020 Championship Show)

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic and having considered both Government and Kennel Club directives, we have had to make the very difficult decision to cancel our usual events until next year.

The cancellations include our 29th November Championship Show which has been postponed to 01 May 2021.

Details of the cancellations and the events planned for 2021 can be found on our Club Calendar page.


The Southern Newfoundland Club (SNC) was formed in 2008 and is registered with the Kennel Club and recognised as an official UK Breed Club.

The club aims to promote, protect and preserve the Newfoundland dog breed by the involvement of the Club and our growing membership in Working, Showing and Welfare activities.

We are particularly keen on encouraging participation and involvement by our junior members so we feature prominently their results and achievements on this site. New pictures, announcements and other features are added regularly ... so please visit often!
