The London & Southern Counties Budgerigar
Society caters for all Budgerigar breeders living in London, Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Essex, Middlesex,
Hampshire inc I.O.W. and Jersey. If you are a new fancier
or already breeding and exhibiting Budgerigars, you will
find great benefit in joining the London & Southern
Counties Budgerigar Area Society.
We are one of the largest of the ten Area Societies in the
UK, which are affiliated to
The Budgerigar Society.
The Society publishes regular newsletters to keep members
informed about Society activities and our show patronage is awarded to
many societies and
shows each year, both within and outside the boundaries of our
area. Each member will have the opportunity to win rosettes,
spoons and diplomas. Linked to our
patronage we have Breeder of the Year awards; the 'Chelfers'
and 'Blue Riband' awards.
We currently have three successful annual shows:
- Combined Young Stock Show
& Rares' Show - July
- Area Open Championship Show -
- Inter Club Competition
We provide a Help Line service to members who need to
contact one of our experienced members for immediate help
The Society publishes a list of approved judges who can
officiate at any shows organised by local societies.
When you join, you will be
issued with your own personal London & Southern (LS) number. This
allows you to purchase rings (leg bands) through the Budgerigar
Society with this unique number on it. For a fee of just £25 it is also possible to
purchase your own 'Personalised Ring Number' .
You will also be issued with a 'Membership Certificate' which can be
framed and displayed on your birdroom wall.
