January Trial Cancellations
This is the announcement you knew would be made. Due to the current travel restrictions, this Club will be unable to hold any further Trials this season.
Let’s look forward to a healthier, happier 2021. Hands, face, space! Keep safe everyone.
December Covid-19 update
Due to National Tier changes, and to respect our Host’s wishes, Meon Valley’s Novice Cocker, at Malshanger, is cancelled.
Our Open Trials at Southwick are in T2 and will, atm, still be going ahead.
We emphasise that all current Government advised Covid-19 protocols must, and will be, observed.
Please help our FT Sec as much as possible. Bring your own masks, gloves and sanitiser. Bring your own mug/spoon (tea/coffee is available). Be prepared to take notes of any card alterations.
BASC responds to publication of new General Licences for England
We at Meon Valley had been guided by BASC re 2nd December. Our Open Cocker is now to be rescheduled to January

This season’s Meon Valley Trials will, provided our lockdown is not extended, go ahead as planned. Our FT Sec is working extremely hard to keep on top of every single thing that the COVID situation can throw at her.
We are mindful that the pandemic, and the fact that we have no spaniel championships, may mean a depleted number of qualified dogs entering our Open Stakes. If this happens then the Trial will be reassigned as an All Aged (still with preference in the Draw as per Open Stakes).
Trial entry form and schedule
The full schedule and trial entry form for 2020-21 is now available on the events page.
There will be no Raffle on the 6th of September.
Autumn Working Test 2020
