We hope you all had a lovely Easter! We have loved seeing your pictures on our Basset Walks Facebook group, it certainly seems like a little bit of sunshine has woken us all up! There are lots of things being planned over the next few weeks and months, so we thought we'd pop some dates for your diary into a blog. We really hope that you can join up with your local basset group soon, we would love to see you!
Gillian's Car Boot Sale
Our fundraising co-ordinator, Gillian, has been working really hard behind the scenes to get things organised. This Sunday, April 3rd, is her first boot sale in aid of us here at BRNGB. She will be in Warborough, Oxfordshire OX10 7DN selling all manner of bric-a-brac! She has other dates in the pipeline soon, so if you can, please pop along and support her. She will also take in any donation you might have, please get in touch with her via her email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gillian has also been busy setting up our very own eBay account, which is now live! You can access it by following the link below.
Hopefully we can grow and develop this site to sell donated items, again, of you do have any stuff lying about you would like to donate, please email Gillian on the above address.
Don't forget, you can always get your 100% genuine BRNGB merchandise from our shop...watch for new items to be added soon!
South East Basset Camp
Our very good friends and fosterers Paul and Lisa Hudson have arranged the first Basset Camp of the year, in Hailsham, East Sussex, over the weekend of the 15th April. Details to the camp itself are on the link below. If you don't fancy camping yourself, but live near enough to come for the day, there is a walk on the Cuckoo Trail on Saturday the 16th April, to be followed by hotdogs back at camp. We'd love to see you if you can make it at some stage over the weekend. Let's hope for some gorgeous spring weather to really enjoy the weekend!

We shall again be selling out pic'n'mix, BRNGB merchandise and lucky dip, so please come along and support us if you are local! (Or even fancy a day out, it was a really good event last year with lots of displays and interactive areas to keep the kids happy too!)
