The Club is saddened to announce that Pat Kindersley passed away aged 83 on the 27th November 2021. Pat was a very loyal supporter of the Club, attending training classes and entering and. helping. at working tests although she only discovered gun dogs later in life. Her first interest was the breeding, showing and international judging of Dalmatians.

Pat acquired her first golden retriever as a rescue dog – Misty had impaired vision but proved to be a marvellous picking up dog. Two golden retrievers and. a black Labrador followed and Pat had discovered a sport that she loved.

The photograph was taken of Pat giving away the awards at the “End of Training Retriever Test” in August this year where she met up with old friends. She will be sadly missed.
