IT IS WITH GREAT REGRET THAT WE HAVE TO ANNOUNCE THE DEATH OF MR KEITH BARRACLOUGH
Keith was well known to all fishkeepers and helped societies in lots of ways.
Both with giving foods on behalf of King British to help with their Open Shows
and also going to clubs and giving talks. He will be sadly missed by all and are thoughts go out to his family.

Otley Aquarists Society is a small friendly club; we meet on the Second Monday every month at 8pm. for details phone 01274 531418

At the moment there are fifteen members who attend each meeting where we have either a film show or a lecture and where any problems can be discussed. Many's the times other problems like gardening also get an airing, whose tomatoes are ripening and whose are not! And lots of ideas of how to rid your garden of slugs are just some of the subjects. Get Harold on to live foods and you have a discussion there forever, Ken on to Angels and again talk for hours, Anne on to discus, Graham on to fish houses, George well he'll always come up with something for you to natter about be it his famous quizzes or a video, and the rest of the gang.

In the past we have gone to other clubs for inter society shows but these days not many of us show fish due to other commitments. Some of us usually try to go to other societies' Open Shows where we enjoy the auction and having a chat with friends. We have also exhibited at the Yorkshire Aquarist Festival held each year at Doncaster Race course. We have won first place twice with our tableaux and second once. This was a very enjoyable experience- tiring but enjoyable.
