The Annual Parrot Society Sale 2022

The annual sale finally took place on Saturday 23rd July after being postponed due to Covid.

It was a good turn-out of visitors, although sadly a very poor number of sellers.  That said, it was nice to catch up with fellow members after such a period of absence and a great time was had.  We've received great feedback about the raffle and auction and thanks to everyone who contributed items. 

Following the sale the AGM was held where Hayden Van Hooff was unanimously re-elected as president.  Finally a discussion was held about the bird ban effective 1st September 2022.
