Statement from the British Rabbit Council Governing Body
OFFICE CLOSURE & PURCHASE OF RINGS
The Governing Body of the BRITISH RABBIT COUNCIL took the decision, following the Prime Minister instruction on 23.03.2020, to close the office with immediate effect. The reasons behind this were we are a non-essential industry. We also must take into consideration the health & welfare of our office staff.
We appreciate this is a very worrying time for everyone but we must all stick together to get through this terrible time.
I can confirm that I will hopefully from Friday, be able to distribute rings to all fanciers. These rings can only be ordered by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07962175845. The information required will be a stud or name the rings are to be registered in the size & quantity. Payment will be needed either by PayPal to email@example.com or bank transfer, details will be given following your order. PLEASE NOTE I AM NOT ON FACEBOOK.
We would appreciate if you could send no postal communication at present to the office. The BRC email is not being monitored so any urgent correspondence should be directed to me.
AS I WORK IN AN ESSENTIAL INDUSTRY I WILL BE WORKING FROM HOME & MY OFFICE SO I MAY NOT REPLY IMMEDIATELY. I WILL BE POSTING RINGS WHEN I AM IN MY WORKPLACE AS DRIVING 3 MILES TO THE POST OFFICE IS NON ESSENTIAL TRAVEL. THIS WILL BE PROBABLY TWICE A WEEK.
We will give you regular updates going forward.

Statement by the British Rabbit Council
The BRC governing body has been following closely The COVID -19 outbreak. As it is believed that the virus will not peak in the UK for 10 to 14 weeks we have made the decision that due to the fact that probably 60+% of our exhibitors fall into the vulnerable category we will grant credit on show support for shows that wish to cancel one week prior to closure of entries. This shall be reassessed daily during the government's containment period. This will be with immediate effect.
We shall be following government guidelines & advice & will update accordingly.
The BRC AGM will now be rescheduled for 11th July 2020
