A word from the Organisers
The Kent Area Group of the Parrot Society UK has been in existence almost as long as the Society itself, having held its earliest meetings wherever it was practicable, including barns and local hostelries.
We are currently holding our gatherings at the British Rail Club, Beaver Road, Ashford, Kent TN23 7RR.
These meetings are arranged by our current Co-ordinator Phil Thomas.
These meetings are well attended by a solid core of regular attendees and guest speakers are usually available to entertain us with mainly bird related talks. We have even hosted a meeting when we were given an insight into world of `Chelonia` or tortoises to the uninitiated. Very interesting diversion into a whole new class of commonly kept pet species.
The depth of knowledge and the range of birds kept by our group provides an ideal platform in which to ask questions and pick the brains of people who have enjoyed this hobby, with all its ups and downs and all are welcome.
If you read this profile and wish to join us at Ashford to meet like minded people, membership is not demanded but if you like what you encounter then information is available on how to join The Parrot Society UK.
WHATS HAPPENING, WHERE & WHEN
We meet at the British Rail Club premises in Ashford, on Sunday afternoons 1330pm for 1400 start. Admission is currently £1.50p which includes tea and biscuits and we also have a raffle which is very popular.
