In December 1968 a meeting of Beagle enthusiasts took place in Carmarthen and is recognised as the founding of the Welsh Beagle Club. Kennel Club recognition came in 1969 and the Club held its inaugural Open show the same year. Best In Show was Raimex Wager owned by Mrs Diana Brown who still exhibits today and is indeed our Patron. The Club achieved Championship status in 1972. From the late 70’s Mrs Pat Norman (Norvane) was Hon Secretary before handing over to the current Secretary, Lyn Mitchell, in 1996. The Club holds two shows yearly, an Open show in the Spring and a Championship show in the Autumn.
