Announcement – Garden of England Cat Club Show Cancelled
It is with great sadness that following the Government’s announcement regarding the changes to protocol for incoming passengers travelling from abroad (which came into effect from 4 am this morning) We have had to take the hard decision to cancel our upcoming show on 4th December in Colchester.
The new rules will require our judges to take a Day 2 PCR test on entry in the UK and isolate until a negative result is returned. The results of the Day 2 PCR test will not be back in time for the judges to leave isolation to judge at the show. The committee have spent the past 3 days trying to find a solution to this problem but have been unsuccessful.
Entry fees will be refunded to exhibitors, please send us your bank details so that we can arrange this ASAP for you.
The Garden of England Committee are devasted at having to take this decision as we were so looking forward to seeing everyone again after such a long time away from showing.
We wish you all a safe and merry Christmas and have no doubt that we will be working towards our May show in the new year.

25th November 2020 Announcement
Felis Britannica General Secretary
The Felis Britannica General Secretary, Wendy Chapman recently approached the
Executive Committee as she has been finding the administrative side of the role more
challenging over the last 12 months for a variety of reasons.
In order to retain the experience Wendy brings to the role from her seven years on the
Executive Committee, after discussing the options, we came to the decision that the best
solution was for the Deputy General Secretary to move into the General Secretary position
and vice versa. This allows the Deputy General Secretary to take over the requirements of
the General Secretary role with the support and guidance of an individual experienced in
the wide range of requirements this role entails.
Our Deputy General Secretary, Gemma Chapman will therefore be taking over the role of
General Secretary from the 1st December 2020, until the next Felis Britannica AGM. There
will be no change in the email and telephone contact details for the General Secretary.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind our members that any communication with
the General Secretary should of course go through your club secretary.

Announcement – Resignation Felis Britannica Vice President
The Executive Committee are very sad to announce the resignation, with immediate effect,
of Fran Williams as Vice President of Felis Britannica. Fran has had to come to the
decision to refocus her commitments due to other priorities in her life and she has
therefore decided to take a break from the demanding Felis Britannica work.
The Executive Committee are extremely sad to be losing Fran as one of the team, but
entirely understand where her priorities must be over the coming months and we are very
grateful to her for her years of loyal service and hard work.
We hope that the Clubs and their members will join us in extending our heartfelt thanks to
Fran for her contribution to Felis Britannica and FIFe over recent years and we wish her all
the best for the future.
With immediate effect our Deputy Vice President, Sarah Johnson, will be taking over the
role of Vice President until the next Felis Britannica AGA.
