Now representing over 30 clubs both in the UK & Europe, as well as overseas, this new website enables both club officials and fanciers to keep up to date with what is happening both within the Border Convention as it oversees and administers the hobby, in addition to news and show results from all the member clubs.

Working together with other Border websites, the aim of all is to both promote - and safeguard the hobby of breeding and showing Border Canaries.

This Site is to showcase the member Clubs that make up the Border Convention, if any Club can suggest ways the site can be improved please  contact the Secretary.

Francis Mooney

 

It is with sincere regret that the Border Fancy and Fauldhouse Border Clubs have to report the passing of Francis Mooney.

Francis, more commonly known as the “Tea Lady”, was the wife of the well-known Dark Man Tom Mooney. After Toms death she still kept the birds and continued to support the Clubs providing refreshments at the shows for exhibitors.

Our condolences go to her family and friends at this sad time.
