This is booked!
Whitby Bandstand, 10am - 4pm, Sunday 28th April.
It is Spring Goth Weekend in Whitby which will attract a huge crowd, not just of Goths and Dracula fans but others who come to see their fantastic outfits! They have a dog walk on this day, meeting at the bandstand at noon, so I'm hoping we will therefore be well placed to capture a dog-loving crowd.
Last time we did Whitby someone mentioned that tombolas go down well there. We have permission to hold one so if we can all start collecting decent prizes we could give this a go. We'll have the shelter of the bandstand for ourselves and the prizes so this might be as good a time as any to try it!
Please let me know if you can take part in this, and if so what hours you can cover.
www.scarborough.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=15655 (the nearest public long stay car park to the bandstand is Pavillion Drive, but nothing is really that far away from anything in Whitby! The train station is also nearby but limited service on Sundays)
I will pop down fore most of the day if you would like will start collecting tombolas prizes, what sort of stuff do you want.
Not sure how many hounds I'll have with me as Eddie struggles to stand for long but might get oh to swop them over, that sounds like I have loads but I only have 2
That's fab, thanks so much. For the tombola - bottles of wine / spirits, nice toiletries, chocolates, toys, jewellery ... anything you think might entice folks to part with their cash in return for a ticket!

Just giving this a bump up as it is a week on Sunday!
It'll be a good day. Thanks to Vanessa we've got a stall and a tombola drum, and have collected a good few prizes. Whitby will be bustling so it'd be great if there were a few of us to make sure we can chat to everyone and also run the tombola. Vanessa is bringing a hound but I can't so if anyone else with hounds could come along, even for an hour or so, the dogs always work wonders in attracting visitors over.
Sorry- didnt realise it was so close. Two peeps an one and a arf hounds ready an waitin.
Is there still a dropping off point near by? Cath`s not too good on her pins.
Do you need anything bringing?
By drop off point do you mean close parking if so dependant on what time you arrive you should get parked on what is known as khyber pass there is or was some free parking but this is limited, there is also some on the cliff top but again it'll be at a premium.
Sorry just read this properly, you can drop off next to the bandstand area, watch out for the steam bus and open top bus as we are just there.

Hopefully the day will be warm and sunny but can I say bring sun cream if you or the hounds are sensitive to the sun as it can be a bit of a sun trap down there at times,
Picked up the stall and ticket drum today thanks to my in laws and rotary club of whitby, it's not huge but does. Mean we are more prominent than in the and stand itself. With a little bit of shelter from the elements, if anyone is bringing tombola prizes can they let me know. Roughly how many as I'll make sure I bring extra tickets.

peggy: Also a brand new greyhound owner, I love her already. It's hard to believe she is 4 years old, I have to keep reminding myself she was in a kennel and not a home. She is a beaut, but goes skits around food, I suppose it was the excieting time of day x

kiri07: I have been concerned with my 7 year old greyhound losing hair on her thighs, but it looks like it is a normal thing. She's losing a little in a few other places too. I saw someone say something about vetzyme condition tablets? I also heard organic oat

steeveet: Hi there, just had our home inspection by a lovely lady with her Greyhound Arthur, who I could have happily snaffled as he was sweet and at home with our girl Belle. Does anyone here know how we now get to meet any of the dogs who need a home?

greylover68: Can I shout out advice re fireworks! Rock Rose which is a Bach’s Flower Remedy works fantastically! My great big big is petrified but a few drops of Rock Rose and he’s calm within minutes. It is for fear so would help with other things too.
