Wessex, one of the kingdoms of Anglo-Saxon England, whose ruling dynasty eventually became kings of the whole country. In its permanent nucleus, its land approximated that of the modern counties of Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, and Somerset. At times its land extended north of the River Thames, and it eventually expanded westward to cover Devon and Cornwall. The name Wessex is an elision of the Old English form of “West Saxon.”  © Encyclopædia Britannica

The Wessex Border Collie Club was founded in February 2003. Prior to this, the club had been know as The Central Southern Branch of The Border Collie Club of Great Britain, which was started in 1989/1990 by Pam Harris and Vicky Gray.  The First committee meeting was held in January 1990.  Pam Harris was elected Chairperson, the rest of the original committee being Barbara Bridge, Ron Bridge, Jackie Bromwich, Sylvie Derrick, Bernie Gray, Vicky Gray, Alan Harris, Norman Haydock and Pat Haydock.

In 2003, after much careful deliberation, the committee decided that the Branch should become a Club in its own right ... and so the Wessex Border Collie Club was born.

The objects of the Club are to promote and encourage the responsible ownership, breeding, working and showing of Border Collies.  New members are always welcome, wherever they may live. Please contact either the Secretary or Treasurer for further details.
