After a 12 year break, the first Halifax and District CBS open show was held.

Organisers were happy with how the show held at Elim Pentecostal Church, Halifax, went with more than 170 birds being entered into the competition.

There was a wide range of caged birds entered into the various competitions including canaries, budgies and British birds.

This is the club’s first show to welcome the public since 2000. It’s 2011 show had to be cancelled because of an outbreak of bird flu which put a strain on club funds.

President Nigel Mee said the show was also open to people who weren’t members at the club.

“The whole day went very well. We didn’t know what sort of interest we were going to get after the break but we are pleased,” he said.

“We are hoping to hold it again next year because it is the club’s 130th anniversary.”

Mr Mee said he would like to thank all the sponsors and the church for allowing them to hold the event.

The club meets on the first Friday of every month at the church in Hall Street from 7.30pm.

New members are always welcome and can just pop in.
