WELCOME TO OUR WEB SITE
Whitehaven Cage Bird Society was formed over 127 years ago and is still going strong!
We hold our Monthly Meetings on the First Tuesday of the month in Mirehouse Labour Club
ALL MEMBERS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND
We run a Monthly Draw and this is our biggest income and helps in no small way for us to survive financially.
THE SOCIETY HOLDS THREE SHOWS A YEAR, ALL ON SUNDAYS
THE MEMBERS SHOW
Held in January, usually about the 3rd Sunday - attracts betweeen 80 - 150 Exhibits and is judged by other Local Society's Members
ENTRIES ARE TAKEN ON THE DAY AND THE SHOW LASTS A COUPLE OF HOURS
YOUNG STOCK SHOW
The Young Stock Show or as it's usually called "The Nest Feather Show" is predominantly for Birds just bred the few months before and is held first Sunday in July.
Classes and Specials are provided for old Birds, so if you have experienced a poor Breeding Season - you can still exhibit if you want to and it brings revenue into the Club as well as increasing the Entry plus there are more Exhibits for Visitors to view.
The Entry is around the 700 mark!
Fanciers regularly travel long distances and we receive them very favourably.
Awaiting details . . . . .
Our Ladies Section does a marvellous job providing Refreshments and run Raffles and a Tombola.
