The RPRA are looking for a Development Officer, as racing pigeons are on the way down, membership in the 1989's was around 60,000, now its only 21,000 a loss of 60% during the last 30yrs, and a large number of membership are above retirement age,and not a lot of new members joining the sport, so membership could fall at a larger rate, the job of the Development Officer is part time and will be to get the awareness of the sport out to the public ,this is for a trial period, but if successful could be extended,

As long as we have the bop problem I don't think a development officer will make any difference to the dwindling membership in the whole of the UK.Hope I'm wrong thou.

I think it’s a good idea as there’s a chance to get new people to be aware of this hobby, one suggestion is the social media and Internet is one way to step forward and I would like to do this but I’m in Scotland so RPRA is no use. I’m a young guy and think that technology in this century is one way to grab new members.
