holding Educational Events at least one per year, including those arising from Kennel Club requirements, Supporting Open Shows with classes for Griffons where first time Judges have been appointed from our Lists (14 approached in 1999), running the Rescue scheme for Griffons operated by an expert in the breed, maintaining a presence at Crufts annually at the Club Stand – a meeting point for many overseas members,offering Merchandise on the Club Stall including items exclusive to GBC at all events, running a Health Committee – in line with Kennel Club requirements,maintaining Archives, publishing Judges Lists,
In addition to this members of the Club receive the Bulletin (3 editions per year) and are entitled to the Club’s Cups and Trophies (which date back over 50 years).
