Midland Counties English Rabbit Club

CLUB NEWS

I sincerely hope these notes find you all fit and well and hopefully weathering the storm of lock down. Regrettably, the current crisis we are all experiencing with Covid-19 has of course resulted in the cancellation of our Young Stock Show scheduled for June 14th. I am sure you will all be sitting looking at our stock and imagining what might have been, would this have been your year for glory? 

With the social distancing rules currently in place the staging of rabbit shows in the usual format is not possible.Your hardworking Committee have thought long and hard on the best course of action to take with the health and welfare of our membership always at the forefront of any decisions taken and have acted accordingly.

In line with the National English Rabbit Club your Committee have taken the decision to cancel the Adult Stock Show scheduled for October 17th 2020. Where possible and subject to availability all judges who should have officiated at our cancelled shows will be invited to judge the same stock shows and support shows in 2021.

Our current membership stands at 42 including Life Members. In view of no shows being held during the year all current members will be given free membership for 2021.

One of our Life Members Alan Lakin unforunately spent a lengthy period in hospital with Covid-10 isolated in a room on oxygen. I am pleased to say he is now back home even though he is still very weak and as yet cannot even climb the stairs. He has however fully regained his sense of humour and will hopefully soon be back chasing J.R. around the garden.

Thats all the news I have at the moment, keep breeding and hopefully improving your stock ready for when things get back to something like normality. Janet sends her fondest regards and we both look forward to seeing you all at shows sometime in the future.

STAY SAFE
