24/01/2018: a few notes-
1) Loft alterations/extensions – members extending lofts/adding aviaries to the front will require to be re-measured at their own cost.
All loft locations within the NEHU are calculated with hand held GPS to the agreed formula and extending a loft/adding an additional loft affects the loft location which then impacts upon distances.
2) Use of prohibited substances
Ignorance is no defence. All members are reminded to check with the supplier of any product they administer it is doping free.
Members are advised that two elected officials must witness vaccination and sign the certificate submitted to each Club/Fed etc.
4) All puncture clocks were withdrawn from use at the January General Council of the NEHU, don’t waste time and effort 3 way testing obsolete clocks!
5) Subscriptions are £12 per partner for 2018 season. This is an increase of £1 on 2017 to cover the decreased income from subscriptions and ring sales due to loss of members.
11/1/2018. Could all club secretaries please check their rings on delivery as we have had some reports of the year being 2017 instead of 2018. Please contact the NEHU office for replacements.
