CCRC Yearbook

Please don’t forget to have a think about your articles and adverts for the 2023 Yearbook….  It would be great to have a record of your activities and achievements in the official Curly Coated Retriever Club of Great Britain 2023 Yearbook.
Articles can be submitted free of charge and it’s great if you can include some photographs – don’t worry about formatting any documents, if it’s easier you can email the text and photographs separately, we’ll pull it all together.
The prices for an Advert remain the same as last year, that’s £25 for a single page, and £40 for a double page. The specifications are – portrait page size is 15.4cm wide by 21.6cm high. Page margins need to be set at 0.8cm on all sides. You can fill the page with colour but any artwork, text and photos need to be within the margins. Please email the advert in jpeg format.
If you have any problems with any of the above, have any queries, or need help to create your advert please email both of the Yearbook Co-ordinators, Wendy Tarelli & Jo Clayton at: &

The deadline for submission is 15 December 2023.
