Ellie Davidson, Nafferton

Would you recommend young people to get involved in pigeon racing?

‘Yes I would, it’s a fascinating sport dating back to the world war and ideal to help with any issues anybody has. With the support from the RPRA and fanciers who are willing to help new starters, it is easy.’

Owen Abery, Berkshire

“After being hooked to this sport for 12 years I will definitely carry it on for the rest of my life. As well as dreaming to be a very high class fancier, I also want to try and get young people like me hooked onto the sport, and help keep this long time and historical sport going.”
