ADVICE FOR POULTRY KEEPERS

Animal & Plant Health Agency

Following recent outbreaks of Newcastle Disease (ND) in Belgium and other European countries the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) has advised that the risk of disease has increased from low to medium.
All poultry and captive bird keepers are urged to enhance their biosecurity and vigilance, by monitoring their birds for signs of disease, and reporting suspicion immediately to their private vet and to APHA. See https://www.gov.ukhttps://www.gov.wales and http://www.gov.scot for further advice.
Poultry species that are affected by Newcastle Disease may show the following clinical signs:
• Respiratory distress, such as gaping beak, coughing, sneezing, gurgling and rattling
• Nervous behaviour, such as tremors, paralysis and twisting of the neck
• Unusually watery faeces that are yellowish-green in colour
• Depression and a lack of appetite
• Produce fewer eggs which could be misshapen and soft-shelled
Government has not imposed any restrictions on bird keepers in response to the findings of ND in Belgium. We continue to monitor the situation across the UK and the rest of Europe carefully.

Allotment leases

Some allotment sites in Stockport have different leases with SMBC. To aid the committee in preparing to negotiate a new extended lease, could all sites please provide us with a copy of their lease, digital or on paper. This will enable us to pick the best points from each and create a lease which will be to the benefit to all our allotment sites. Copies can be sent to our Secretary or brought to the next AS general meeting.
