Dear pigeonfriend,

As you know, for a few years already, I’m organising an indoor pigeon market at the football ground in Bevel. This year again it’s at the same weekend as Houten spring Show in Holland, it’s on Friday March 1é. It’s only 30 min from Antwerp and 10 min from Lier where market is on the Sunday. With loads of parking aria for the coaches it isn’t a problem to get there close to the front door.
There is a bar and a hamburgers stall indoor.

Stolen Pigeon Baskets, St. Helen Auckland, Allotments

4 in number Pigeon Baskets have been stolen from Hart Bros. & Douthwaite , Pigeon Loft, on Wednesday 23rd January 2019.
All baskets are marked with their names, they are not rich members and participate in a poor mans sport, a sport in which we encourage young people to take part, but this sort of thing discourages them, because of the cost to replace what has been stolen.
All help in finding the Culprits will be well appreciated.
Thank You,
Sonny Douthwaite

Letter from NEHU President

It,s disappointing that I have again to remind some members about
the way they are conducting themselves.
Our sport is facing a difficult enough future without the constant harassment and abuse that is hurled at officials and individuals .
Decisions must be made which often results in someone not agreeing or disappointed with the out come.That does not mean that it gives that person the right to abuse anyone.
NEHU rules 46 - 51 covers discipline and what action may be taken.
The reason these rules are not taken UP ENOUGH is often the victim
