Veteran fancier Neville Flett is to hold a yearling sale in the Union Jack Club, Workington on Saturday.
Neville, from Low Moresby, had been planning to move to Lincolnshire, but that hasn’t materialised, and has about 20 birds to sell.
“They are all bred off Up North Combine winning birds from a distance of 300 miles plus, which I bought from some of the top lofts over in the north east,” says Neville.
Although he hasn’t raced for a number of years Neville competed successfully in the Lowca club in his last active season of 2009.
He has concentrated on entering his youngsters in one loft races and has had a number of successes, including with birds bred for other fanciers.
From the proceeds Neville will be making a donation to the Union Jack Club and will also be raffling two of his birds.
The sale will start at 1pm.
Meanwhile Workington Victoria’s show race for Bedhampton attracted 83 entries and they were judged by Andrew and John Edgar.
