Hello to all volunteers past, present and newcomers.

We are about to hit the ground running with the new HP breeding season about to begin. It would be wonderful to catch up with as many as possible to meet one another, and share ideas, information, or other enquiries anyone has prior to the season taking off. There has been lots happening in the background to prepare for this season and it will be a great opportunity to share all things Hoodie.

Hopefully this date suits most. Please feel free to contact me if you can't make it in person but could possible meet by a microsoft Teams invite.

Looking forward to seeing many of you and catching up with our local Hoodies on the beach!

Cheers to all things Hoodie!
