The organisers of NOCF have deliberated long and hard , involving much discussion and consideration of all factors and have regrettably come to the decision that we will not be running any more NOCF events.

Firstly, on a personal note, I wish to extend my deep thanks to Dave Banks for his unstinting help and support right from the initial idea and to Rhia and Paula for helping me to turn my strange idea into a successful reality.

The help and work behind the scenes was immeasurable and was given unconditionally in an effort to benefit everyone in Obedience.

I still believe the idea is a good one and it’s something that is needed in obedience and I hope that someone else will create a similar event.

Huge thanks must go to our sponsors over the years Pet Needs, Norton rosettes, Albion Meats products, ain’t misbehaving agility clothing, Arden Grange, DTW, Howl Emporium, With Your Dog, Made- to- measure Leatherworks, ObedienceUK.

Huge thanks also to Dave & Mary Ray and Kathy Russell, who turned up every year to help with the setting up, then worked tirelessly all day on whatever task they were asked to do and also stayed and helped clear up and for all Dave’s help with the PA system and invaluable advice and support and Mary for managing the presentation ceremonies and for her fabulous displays.

Huge thanks to everyone who helped with setting up and clearing up – we could not have done it without you!!

Biggest thanks must go to everyone who participated in any way, whether it was part of a ring party, helping out, competing or supporting – it was all of you that made the Events the success that they were over six years- NOCF was created for all of you and all of you who chose to support it made it a success and made it your event.

Thank you so much to you all.
