  2. John Johnny Giles.
    It is with deep regret that I have to report the passing of Johnny Giles. A long-standing Member of the Cornish Border.
    Johnny as he was known to all, was a Border man for well over 50 years’ he was not a big Breeder or a big Show man, but he always supported all the Cornish Shows with a useful team of Birds.
    Johnny was always there to be The Doorman and run the Raffle or help in the Kitchen when ever needed at any Show.
    He was like a magnet to all children that may be there, getting them to help with the Raffle Tickets. He was a quiet man with a very dry sense of humour. He will be greatly missed by many clubs.
    So on behalf of The Cornish Border and all The Cornish Fanciers I send our condolences to his Family.

    Colin Pearce.
    President Cornish Border.

    It is with great sadness that Cumbria Border & Fife Fancy C.C. reports the death of Gerry Pickering of Gilgarran, Workington in Cumbria. He will be greatly missed by his family and his friends throughout the Border Canary fancy.

  11. Des Gurner
    Sad to report the passing of Des Gurner . Although Des has not shown his birds for a long time he will be remembered by a lot of older fanciers . I can’t remember Des having any other birds in his shed other than Borders and always strived to get his stock from top breeders . He always new who was getting the best results around the shows although he didn’t get to many himself, he had a good eye for a bird and would spend considerable time at our show looking at all fanciers birds not just the top table.

    Our condolences go out to his family.

    Warning there is a scammer, a novice exhibitor, advertising on Bird Trader using the photograph of a Champion breeder (who was completely unaware) trying to get birds from people on the pretext that he had a bird flu problem (which there isn’t).

  63. Breeding Survey Preliminary Results
    At the outset of the Survey we agreed to close the Survey on the weekend of British Border.
    To date we have had over 50 Completed forms and the committee would like to thank all the individual fanciers and the Clubs who have supported us in this endeavour.
    The preliminary result from the first 50 proves what the majority of fanciers believed.

    It Has Been A Bad Breeding Season.

    A total of 781 Hens reared 1,331 chicks, an average of 1.706 / hen.
    Highest Average of 4.1 / hen and a lowest of 0.65 / hen.
    The survey has also highlighted some areas that need addressing with articles by leading Fanciers.

    However 50 Results is only a small representation of the Fancy and more would help to give us a truer picture.
    If you have not yet filled in a survey download a copy of the survey and send it to the Secretary this week, or if you are at British Border Ronnie Sillitoe, our Chairman has some copies of the Survey and will be pleased to speak to you and receive your completed form.
    Finally we would like to wish everyone exhibiting the best of luck and have a good weekend.

  85. International Rule Update

    A short discussion took place at this year’s (2017)International Show at Faulderhouse, Scotland. between Scotland, Wales and England regards to the number of Champions and Novices that are showing at each show. All three Countries are struggling to get a full quota of Champions and Novices each time.
    It was agreed that we still aim for a maximum of 11 Champions and 11 Novices with 2 reserves per Champion and Novice Sections. If this cannot be achieved by any one Country (Not Counting Ireland North / South Combined because due to import restrictions they only ever manage 3 or 4 exhibitors showing) then we only use the points scored by the same numbers of team members per Country Champion and Novice Sections using the 4 maximum points from each member.
    Reps attending:- Jim Aitchison, George McGougan (BFCC) Garry Marshall, Linden Evans, & John Furmage (Welsh BFCC) and Keith Wadkin & Bob Norman (BBFCC)
    R. S. Norman
    General Secretary.

    Thanks to everyone who has filled in and returned the Breeding Survey.
    The number of people that have participated so far has been very encouraging, ,and we would like to thank the Welsh, Cleveland, Northern Ireland/East Antrim and Mid Ulster Clubs for wholeheartedly getting behind the survey.
    The initial findings coming out from the survey that need addressing fall into four categories.
    1.Humidity and Airflow
    2.Lack of Breeding Condition
    3. Mite Control
    4.General Management (time and effort)
    However to give us a better and more fuller picture we would still like those of you haven’t filled in a survey to do so and e-mail it to borderconventionsecretary@gmail.com
