Christchurch Poultry, Pigeon, Canary, and Cat Society
Christchurch Poultry, Pigeon, Canary, and Cat Society.
This Society, established in 1868, seeks improvement in the breed of the birds and animals from which it takes its name. Year by year, since its formation, it has held exhibitions which have been well attended and well supplied with exhibits. Prior page 106to 1844 cats had not received any attention at the hands of the Society, but in that year they were added to the list of objects of it, and they were exhibited in strong force at the show in July, 1844, there being ten classes on the catalogue, and eighty entries. The Society is managed by a President (Mr. R. W. Fereday), vice-Presidents, and a Committee. Mr. R. E. M. Evans is the hon. Secretary, and Mr. George E. Trigg the hon. Treasurer.
