Greyhound Action North-West


Greyhound Action's branches in Manchester and Cheshire have merged to form a new regional branch,
called Greyhound Action North-West, in order to more effectively campaign against the greyhound
racing industry in the area.

The main focus of the campaign is to bring about the closure of the greyhound track at Manchester's
Belle Vue Stadium, but it will also be working to end dog racing at the region's two flapping
tracks, at Ellesmere Port and Westhoughton (Bolton), as well as to educate members of the public in
the area not to attend or bet on greyhound racing, wherever that might take place.

Greyhound Action North-West (GANW) can be contacted at or on
07952 238592.


Greyhound Action North-West are appealing for more help and support for their campaign to end
greyhound racing at Belle Vue Stadium.

The group hold demos/leafletting sessions outside the stadium every Saturday evening, and sometimes
on week-nights too, but urgently need more volunteers to help keep these going.

So, if you live in or near the Manchester area and can get along to help outside Belle Vue, even if
only occasionally, please contact GANW (details above).

Greyhound Action North-West will be holding a street collection and public education day in
Northwich on Saturday May 9th from 11am till 4pm, and are appealing for both human and canine
volunteers to help them shake tins and run their information stall.

They would particularly like people to bring their rescued greyhounds along to the event, to help
attract public attention, so as to educate more people about the plight of dogs disposed of by the
racing industry.

So if you live in or near the Cheshire area and can get along to help at Northwich on May 9th, with
or without a rescued greyhound, the folks from GANW will be very pleased to see you.

The information stall will be in the main square in Northwich town centre and the
collection will take place in the pedestrianised area, where the High Street meets with Witton
Street (near to Woolworths).

Please contact GANW if you can help.
