BFC National Facebook group

Dear Members

Your Club is pleased to announce the launch of a BFC National Facebook group.  The decision has been taken to provide a national Club Facebook group as a platform for discussion on falconry and related topics, and for dissemination of Club issues and events.  The group is open to BFC members only.

The Group page will be reviewed after a trial period of six months to consider whether it has been a success or whether it has been utilised for negative purposes.  Please grasp this opportunity and use it for the positive benefits that such a platform can deliver.

The group can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1951658695116193/?ref=bookmarks

Please click on the link and apply to join.  A member of the Admin team will approve your request upon confirming your BFC membership.

Two moderators selected from the membership are required to assist with the running of the group.  Anyone interested in taking on such a role should notify the Club secretary by email at: admin@britishfalconersclub.co.uk

Pat Coles

The president writes: I have to report that earlier this week, Pat Coles – long-term member and past chairman of the Southern Group – died. He was 83. He was still hawking last season, indeed I spent a day with him, and his close friends Alan Peters and Nick Nicklinson. He was a stalwart of the club, a committed austringer, and will be much missed.

We do not yet have funeral arrangements but as soon as these are available we will make sure everyone knows.

Our deepest sympathies go out to his wife Patricia, his family, and his many friends and colleagues.
