Brambleberry will once again be at the Great Greyhound Gathering at Nottingham in September with our stand, and hopefully, one or two Brambleberry dogs. This is a wonderful, fun, greyhound show run by the RGT, with classes for other breeds. It’s packed with merchandising stalls of every doggy kind, and usually has dog-wash trailers on site. Food and drink available, permanent toilet facilities, and an evening of racing for those inclined to stay on for it.
Look out for the dark blue gazebo with the Brambleberry banner – we also have some brand new green RGT bunting which (all being well) will be fluttering in the breeze, too!
Goods on sale will include our unique ‘Greyhound Myths’ series of note cards, the ‘Pawprints in your heart’ sympathy (pet loss) cards (both handmade with genuine photographs), hand braided tag necklaces each with a charm or two, collar charms, jewellery for people, and normal Brambleberry merchandise: trolley coin tokens, biros, poop bags, T shirts etc. I have one or two of Sues’ lovely hand-knitted hounds left, too. Oh, and RGT Christmas cards, if you fancy getting in early and buying at last year’s prices.
We plan on holding a ‘Guess the number of beans in the jar’ contest, which proved quite popular at the recent Dick White Open Day. Prizes are to be announced, but may well include another lovely dog hamper filled with treats, toys etc.
If anyone would like to come along and spend some time with us, lend a hand, donate something for sale, please let me know. All offers are very gratefully received and very welcome. Or just come along and say hi – if you have a Brambleberry hound, we’d love to see them.
More details nearer the time, but this year the Great Greyhound Gathering will be on Saturday 21st September, at Nottingham Racecourse. Plenty of parking available, right next to the event.
Donations for the prizes will be welcome!
