At the AGM on Monday night Bob Boswell, Paula Boswell, Maria Collins and Diane Benson all stepped down.

Darren Baker has been made Chairman Elect, but this will be subject to members approval and anyone wishing to take on the role will be given the opportunity to step forward and run against Darren.

It now stands that only 

Chairman Elect (Darren) Elliot - Treasurer, Dave Staddon - Memberships and Norah McEllistrim - Commitee Member remain along with Jenny Bunting who runs the Retired Greyhounds Trust at Hove who holds a place for Welfare 

The board therefore needs a Vice Chairman and a minimum of 2 other committee members to function otherwise there is a real possibility that the BGOA will fold

We therefore strongly urge anyone who would like to be involved on the Committee to contact the BGOA through this website so we can put your name forward to join the board.

  • Hove RGT receive £216.00 from raffle

At the Annual Hove Awards Night held in March this year a magnificent £216.00 was raised in the raffle for Hove Retired Greyhound Trust. 

This sum has been passed to Hove following receipt of an invoice for Pepper who was previously not supported in the kennels. 

Pepper has now been re-homed and therefore Owners were able to pay her last invoice before going to her forever home

  • Annual Membership subscriptions 

The annual membership subscriptions for the BGOA were due in January, however not everybody renewed and in March alone 6 trophy winners were not eligible for awards due to their membership lapsing.

If your membership has lapsed and you still wish to be a member of the Owners Association please print off a form from the website and pass this over to Dave Staddon with your payment.
