“Racing and Breeding Pigeon Lofts”

I was born in Waltham Abbey in Essex in 1943 during the war years and I was the only one in my family to be interested in pigeons. I had a few pigeons as a young boy of around nine years old, which I kept as pets and started racing the pigeons seriously in 1966.

 

In my first London North Road Combine Race from Northallerton I was 1st Club, 2nd Federation and 13th Open and this  led to my lifelong passion with racing pigeons. I was a carpenter by trade and have built several lofts for myself at the different addresses we have lived in, to the present day lofts that I now have which are fitted with modern nest boxes and perches with conveyor belts for cleaning.

 

In the early days I was racing North Road with the North London Federation, winning many races through the years.

 

After moving to Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire I turned to South Road racing as I felt that this offered a new challenge.  I am now at the present time concentrating on long distance racing across the Channel with the National Flying Club, Midland National Flying Club  and the British International Championship Club obtaining many good positions including winning 1st Section H National Flying Club from Messac and 3rd Section - 87th Open Tarbes - 613 miles.
