To allow the organisation to be sustainable we are reviewing our income and expenditure to ensure we are as efficient as we can be. One of the outcomes of this is that we will be increasing the cost of membership.
We hate to do this but the last increase was over 7 years ago and so we are sure that everyone will understand that it’s a necessary measure, not least to keep up with the price of inflation and escalating postage costs.
The increase for existing members will be in Spring 2020, but for new members, the increase will start on 1st August this year.
Membership will continue to be fantastic value: 4 copies of the magazine, On The Hop booklets, priceless referral advice from our Specialist Vet to name just a few of the fabulous benefits. We hope that everyone will continue to support rabbits by continuing to support us.
If you’re not a member, why not join
before the increase on 1st August?
It is not often that we receive reports of VHD outbreaks.
VN Laura Slinger who is a veterinary nurse in Burton On Trent, has seen a case of VHD at her practice. Also a case of myxi. Reports in the last few days have come in of deaths from myxi in Leybourne Kent and sightings of wild rabbits in East Yorkshire, West Sussex, Gloucestershire and South Wales.
RWAF discussion is open to all on our Facebook page, and we send out information too on our Blog, in First Alerts and via Twitter. However, we know this doesn’t cover everybody and isn’t exclusively for RWAF members.
If you want to belong to a discussion group that is members only, we now have a Yahoo group where members can chat, discuss, ask questions, support, share their photos and generally get together. Apply to join here http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/RWAF/
