History

The Cambridge Town and County Field Trial Society was recognised by the Kennel Club in 1951.  Mr C Catlin was the Chairman.  Committee members included Messrs AE Curtis, S. A Craig,  W Curtis, A Wylie, B Baldwin, Major Neilson, and Mesdames Curtis and Jones.  Mr Andrews was the first secretary.

Social events were planned: a Dance was held at the Beaconsfield Hall in March followed by a Whist Drive later in the year.  Whippet Racing and Greyhound meetings were organised and Events for Sheep Dogs were also held.

Separate Spaniel and Retriever Field Trials were held along with Summer Gundog Tests combined with Clay Pigeon shooting.  An event - known as the Utility Gun Dog Stake - was held for spaniels and retrievers to compete against each other, rather in the manner that the Utility Gundog Society was famous up until the mid-ninety's.
