Rother Valley Christmas Meal
12th December 2021
Thankfully we were able to hold our annual Christmas meal again this year in line with the current Covid restrictions. Everyone had a fantastic evening and we even had some special guests in attendance, our friends from Fenland Working Newfoundlands. There was a raffle, Secret Santa, quiz and certificates handed out to those that braved the cold water and tests in October. Thank you to Lynn & Vin for arranging the meal and making it such a successful event! It was a great way to end the year.

Water Safety Awareness Demonstration, Rother Valley Country Park.
August 1 2021
Rother Valley Working Newfoundland’s were approached by the Fire and Rescue services to see if we would take part in their water awareness day at Rother Valley Country Park. This was to help raise money for throw lines to be located around the lakes and reservoirs in the Rotherham area. Despite a rainy slow start to the day the sun came out and so did the public. The Fire service were amazed with the dogs and just what they were capable of doing. £100 was raised in memory of Sam Haycock who sadly lost his life during the hot weather at Ulley Reservoir.
First Aid and Water training day with Rother Valley Training group CEO
A great day had by all, we learnt some basic first aid and what to do various medical emergencies in the water. A big thank you to Pete and Mark for giving up their time to visit us.
Training with Social Distancing
We have been able to continue training on a limited basis, we have been unable to use boats and have been using a 'bubble' system to reduce risk.

We love having young handlers at RVTG. Isla started when she was 6!
