Dear FBH Supporter,
Welcome to the FBH newsletter and particularly to those who have recently registered to receive these bulletins.
The big news this month is the launch of the new F.B.H. website.
You can see it by clicking HERE or following this link to www.fbh.org.uk
Please feedback to us with any problems you find on the site or with any suggestions you have to [email protected]
The new website represents a leap forward in functionality and efficiently for the F.B.H. and it wouldn’t have been possible without hard work, help and advice from F.B.H supporters. Please see the section below to find out who deserves a big pat on the back.
The FBH breeders’ meeting takes place this Sunday (19th Aug) at Kempton Park.
Doors open at 10:30am to the public and 10:00am to members of affiliated societies.
Entrance to the show is £5

Staines Road East,
Sunbury on Thames,
The next big reptile event for your diaries is the I.H.S. Breeders’ Meeting on Sunday 23rd September. Please see below for venue change information
Doncaster I.H.S. Breeders’ Meeting Venue Change
Following the issues endured at the last Breeders’ Meeting in June there has been a change of venue for the September event. While the I.H.S. has a contract with Doncaster Dome for the September show it was felt that a more permanent solution to the problem was preferable to another expensive court case. It is evident that the Dome is subject to immense pressure from several sources including the Local Authority and so a new venue under private ownership has been found. The move to Doncaster Racecourse presents several benefits for a show of this type, the most obvious being the increased visitor capacity. We hope you enjoy the show. We’re certainly looking forward to it immensely.
