We apologise for the ongoing closure of the Laurie Luxmoore library at KCC Park.
Building works inside the library are scheduled to commence next week, resulting in the area being not accessible to members. We are working to restore the library to normal operation as quickly as possible. We do not yet have a firm date, but hope to have the library open by the end of October, subject to the approval of the Library Committee.
Thank you for your patience while we make improvements to the site.

This area has been over utilised for many years which includes daily use during weekdays.
Members are advised that Exhibition Area One is to be used solely for scheduled events (shows / trials) and is now closed for members use at other times. Members are welcome to use Exhibition Areas two, three, six and seven for training and exercising their dogs. See KCC Park map here
Management Committee will revisit this policy in early 2019.
