  8. Hi Guys!
    National YSS is just around the corner - Spoke to a lot of people over the last few weeks and it's going to be a good one! Looks like the weather may hold out for it too.

    thank you to those who have kindly sent over little reports and photos from the recent stock shows - you're all added. Hopefully more to come in soon too.

    As Phil has told many of us (poor bloke must be blue in the face from repeating it all), the breeders directory runs june-june so will be renewed after YSS. If any NERC members want adding, please contact Phil Shaw directly. It's just £5 for a whole 12 months. I've already got my template at the ready haha

    Really looking forward to my weekend down in Newark with you lot - I'm sure it'll be a blast as always. Hopefully the weather stays glorious - I really don't fancy floating across the showground in my tent!

    see you soon folks!

    PS: HI STEVE!!! :D

  49. Good Afternoon,
    I would like to say what a lovely and informative webiste this is, i found it very useful. I am the owner of a Black English Spotted Doe and I was wondering if anyone could help me in how is the best way to go about rabbit showing, I believe my Doe meets the criteria and i am more then interested in showing her and meeting others that have such passion and love for these beuatiful animals. Any advice would be more then helpful. Thank you

    (Posted on 2015-12-03 12:15:00 by Rebecca Stolworthy)
  50. Congratulations !!! to our " English Gentleman" Bernard Double on winning Best In Show and The "Tom Millar Gold Shield " at this years adult stock show with a Black Doe, also very pleasing was the fact that all five colour cup winners were owned by different exhibitors , which can only be good for the English fancy.
    Well done also to our Sale of the Stars auctioneer Bob Chappell on following his Gold Cup success with another win gaining best under 5 months in the support show.
    On a more personal note I would like to thank all members that voted for me on this years ballot and making me Vice - President for the 125th year of the club.
    I am now looking forward to the Sale of the Stars tomorrow and the rabbits are to be auctioned at 12.30pm - don't be late !

  67. For those with sat nav the post code for the crem for Geoff's funeral is LS19 6JP.

    (Posted on 2014-10-04 09:21:00 by julie miller)
  68. Geoff's funeral arrangements are as follows:

    Monday, 13th October at Rawdom Crematorium, 11:40 hrs. Think there is a wish for donations rather than flowers if anyone is interested, but I will not know this until next Tuesday. Will update further as soon as I have the details.

    (Posted on 2014-10-03 18:18:00 by julie miller)
  69. It is with sadness I have to inform you that one of our elder statesman in the fancy, Geoff Midwood passed away today, peacefully at home at the age of 88.

    I know not everyone always agreed with Geoff with regard to his ideals and thoughts, but these thoughts and ideas were always to ensure the success of the English rabbit and the running of our great club. Anyone that knew him would concur he was English through and through and only had the best interests of the English in his mind at all times.

    He will certainly be very much missed by myself and Brian and I am sure people in the fancy up and down the country.

    I have spoken with Madge tonight and as always, she is as stoic as ever.

    As soon as I have any details about the funeral, I will post them so anyone that wishes to attend can do so.

    (Posted on 2014-10-02 18:16:00 by julie miller)

  71. I would like to post a message from Wendy Parry ( Haslam ) ;

    It is with great sadness that I am informing you that my Dad , Fred Haslam passed away this week . I also wanted to let you know that the funeral service is at Rotherham Crematorium on Tuesday 5th August at 10.30am for anyone who may be able to attend.
    I remember my rabbit show childhood with great affection and my many rabbit show aunties and uncles ,sadly many of whom are no longer with us, I believe my dads dear friend Gilbert Martin also passed away on the very same day.
    How nice that they will maybe meet up on their way .
    kind regards
    Wendy Parry

  72. ple ase note that two of our most respected life members died on Tuesday 22nd July namely Fred Haslam and Gilbert Martin both had experienced poor health over recent years but both had registered major wins and had contributed to the clubs success throughout their lifetime. We expect articles will appear in the next issue of Spotlight regarding tyheir respective backgrounds this certainly should make interesting reading as they were two great ENGLISH men.

  87. The funeral cremation service was one that I will always remember primarily due to the difference to the norm. there were no flowers,no hymns or church music. the gentleman conducting the proceedings had an in depth knowledge of Peter and he welcomed about 80 people to celebrate the life of Peter bringing untold humour to the occassion,there wasnt a tear in sight, as people passed the coffin the music of Alice Cooper was playing apparently this was Peters favourite music. The NERC was well represented and I am positive the ceremony would have certainly been given Peters thumbs up. As we travelled home from Barnsley. Keith Oldroyd, Brian Marsh Ron Sharp and myself agreed this was the way to say the final farewell.

  90. after a disasterous start to the breeding season due primarily to the adverse weather we now have the first youngsters venturing out of the nests, it is to be hoped other English breeders have had better success with the YSS less than 3 months away. May we wish you all a good year, looking forward to seeing that elusive Gold cup winner. Brian.K.

  94. Hello there

    I just wanted to ask if there is anywhere I can find further information regarding my Gt Grandfather's prize winning rabbits from 1933 ?

    I have a lovely Championship Certificate telling me that his rabbit "Clipstone Lady" won 5 first prizes throughout July to August 1933 but I wondered if there was any more info anywhere regarding any further winners he might have had ?!

    Any help anyone may be able to give me would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Emma

  95. Looking at the anticipated list of rabbits to be donated for this years sale of the stars ,it is a most impressive list which reflects the hard and persuasive works undertaken by Gary and Steve together with the extreme generosity of the English membership.All we need now is some competitive bidders to make the event one to be remembered. I recognise many members have lost stock over the past years which makes even more appreciated the generous gifts made to the sale which I expect will result in a financial success to the club and with several successful bidders adding to their respective studs.

  96. I have just enjoyed 15 minutes going through the NERC webpage thoroughly impressed with the collective reports and I found compring the photos of the winning rabbits was a real pleasure. I rapidly drew the conclusion that with this standard of coverage we are truly indebted to both Leah and Gary in keeping the English fancy aware of what is happening at the principal shows. On behalf of the English Fancy can I record heartfelt appreciation of your combined efforts, not forgetting Julie who supplied several photographs, long may this continue. Brian Kettlewood.

  97. I went up to the Turriff Show at the start of August with Steve and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend, we where spoilt rotten by Wendy and Stephen. I was told by Stephen it would be Turriff Shows 150th show in 2014 to which I thought that maybe Scottish Dutch and English might be able to help them celebrate it by having a stock show there. just a thought

  100. Hello Kenny
    What a lovely tribute you have made to your Uncle Ian regarding his success in winning the coveted Gold Cup at the recent NERC YSS.
    In answer to your enquiry regarding how many Scots have won the Gold Cup I think only 3 have had the honour. the first was Gary Robertson in 1991 with a grey, the following year Andy Hutton won the Gold Cup with a black ( albiet Andy was living in Thirsk at the time ) your Uncle Ian being the 3rd in the 91 years that the cup has been presented.
    I will never forget the pleasure it was in presenting the trophy to Ian prior to his departure with John Gardiner back to Scotland.
    I consider the club are indeed fortunate in having such great fanciers prepared to make the long journey South to get the best competition, I know I personally look forward to crossing the border to compete for Tom Millers Gold Shield alternate years. For the record the last Scot to win the Gold Shield was Archie Hamilton in 1996 with a grey.
    hopefully I may meet you on October this year when we will see if Uncle Ian can do the DOUBLE.
    Brian.K. ( NERC President )
