Aviculture involves the keeping and breeding of birds. Our club fosters and promotes the culture that forms around this. Aviculture is generally focused on not only the raising and breeding of birds, but also on preserving avian habitat.

PRESIDENTS REPORT APRIL 2019
We have held our 17th Annual Bird Sale. Unfortunately we have not had time to give you all a financial rundown at this time. We believe that Sellers, Buyers and Birds were down on last year. The trend seems to be the same as previous Sales this year.
I would like to personally like to thank all the Members who helped set up on Friday and pull down on Saturday after the Sale.
I especially thank our two Chief Stewards, Rod Young and John Boyle for their expertise in looking after the welfare of the birds that were brought in to be sold.
Others who worked tirelessly to get the Sellers through the door are Lorraine Hughes, Frank Fikkers and Cheryl Hamilton, a big thank you.
The Raffle table was looked after by Helen Pryor and Jan Heath. Thank you both. All the businesses who donated to our Massive Raffle our genuine thanks for your continued support.
The ladies who were door stewards did a great job. Many thanks go to Marilyn Higgins and Jenelle Cropper.
Our May meeting will be Tuesday 14th May and our in house Table Show and Speaker this month will be Bill Boyd who will also Judge the Show. Please bring you birds along.
