Membership of the Club is open to all and details can be found HERE. Members receive a newsletter several times a year, together with some local discounts and eligibility for our annual Points Trophy (for claim form please click here) and ongoing Purrsonality Awards schemes. The winner of the Points Trophy for 2002 was “Pugwash” owned by Cath Jackson of Preston.

Members can submit articles for publication in the newsletter and each issue features a “cover cat” belonging to one of our members.

We have occasional social gatherings, the main one being the annual Supreme Weekend at a hotel close to the NEC each year for members exhibiting at or just visiting the Supreme Cat Show.

We have a range of SRPCC branded goods for sale, click on the “Club Merchandise” link below left for further details.

We hold an annual pet cat show each year, usually on the third Saturday in February. Entry is for non-pedigree cats and kittens and there are many beautiful rosettes and trophies to be won. The 2003 Best in Show was “Charlie Chuckles”, a real character of a black & white shorthair male owned by member Sandra McHugo from Mostyn in North Wales.

The Purrsonality awards are open to all members and allow even cats who do not show often to climb a few rungs of the ladder with rosettes and certificates for each stage. We now have Jackson’s Amadeus & Creaton & Walker’s Littleman Raffles at Gold, Thomas’ Irish Rover, Pearson’s Champagne Charlie & Timone &  Moreland’s Rosie Posie at Silver and Moreland’s Toby the Tabby & Kidd's Kresta Alfred at Bronze. If you would like to know how to register and claim your awards please download details here.

We are usually available to offer help, support, chat etc at Northern shows and our Club stall can also be seen at most of them, selling Club merchandise and all sorts of cat related items and gifts. Proceeds go to our associated charity, the SRPCC Cat Welfare Trust, details of which can be found HERE
