About The Gardens
Just a few minutes out of the Southport centre in Churchtown is Southports Botanic Gardens. Originally opened in 1874, these Victorian gardens are bursting with floral splendour and colourful displays. Winding through the park is the garden’s lake and a multitude of pathways. There is an aviary, gift shop and café too, so there’s plenty to see and explore. Situated in the beautiful Botanic Gardens in Churchtown, the Botanic Gardens Cafe is a favourite with their well established regular customers as well as visitors. The cafe specialises in homemade food and snacks as well as selling a variety of unusual gifts and toys.

All bolognese and their owners are welcome, so please tell your friends. It will be fabulous to get as many Bolognese together in such lovely surroundings. email to book yourself in, as we need to make sure we meet up with everybody. If the weather forecast looks really really bad, we will have to postpone the event.

BREEDER & FOUNDER MEMBER Belstown Bolognese. I live with 3 Bolognese, show and breed and live in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. I also work part time as a support worker. I originally chose the breed for my daughter to show as a Junior Handler, but she has grown up and number of dogs have grown too! I originally trained as a Veterinary Nurse, as well as managing large show/breeding/boarding & quarantine kennels. I progressed to the commercial sector in sales and marketing of pet products, including running my own PR agency for pet related companies. Along with a few other like minded enthusiasts, we started this club in August 2015 as we felt the breed needed an information centre and a friendly group where people could share their views and learn more about the breed.
