PIGEON RACING AND CORONAVIRUS

 

  • UPDATE AS AT 23 APRIL 2020

As of 23 March 2020 the UK Government brought in in further regulations to limit the spread and impact of the coronavirus. As a direct result pigeon racing will be suspended until at least 14 May 2020.

 

 

The SHU and other unions will continue to monitor the situation, and updates will be published when available.

 

 

Furthermore, while non-essential travel is restricted the following applies to all members: training of pigeons is classed as non essential travel and is therefore CURRENTLY STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

 

 

Care of your Birds

 

 

We understand that manuy members will be worried about how to care for their pigeons, especially if you keep them at a location away from home.

 

Some key points to consider:

 

Attending tp the basic needs of your pigeons should be considered as “essential”, such travel is allowed – but you still need to comply with all the latest government guidelines.

 

 

Further advice – be prepareeed: Planning ahead is essential, and you should have alternative arrangements ready in case you are unable to attend your pigeons for any reason.

 

 

The most important senario to plan for is how your pigeons will be cared for if you become ill – ensure you have arrangements with your friends, family or fellow fanciers to be able to look after your pigeons in your absence.

 

 

I AGAIN WOULD POINT OUT THAT UNTIL THE UK GOVERNMENT MAKES A STATEMNT STATING OTHERWISE THERE WILL BE NO TRANING, RACING, SHOWING OR ANY OTHER GATHERINGS.

 

 

LOOKING AFTER THE WELFARE OF YOUR OWN PIGEONS AND YOURSELVES SHOULD BE YOUR ONLY CONCERN AT THIS TIME.

 

 

 

You are reminded that the SHU office is closed and our staff are on furlough. If you have a problem which cannot wait until the virus closedown is over you can contact me. My email: gturnbull52@gmail.com or by telehone 01383 738020.
