The Monthly Aquadistri/BKKS Raffle

Our third prize winner has been randomly selected and will be announced via the BKKS members Facebook group.    For this month only we have an additional prize winner, so that’s two members who will be receiving their prizes direct from Aquadistri UK


It has been brought to our attention that emails, which appear to have come from the BKKS General Secretary, ( are being received by some BKKS members and non-members.  There isn’t a defined format to these emails other than the subject line, which often refers to an invoice, or a payment that is late and invites the recipient to click a link to find out more details.

We do not send emails relating to payments so these are spoof emails.

Do not open them or you risk downloading malicious software into your machine.

So, be careful, and this goes for any emails you do not recognize, do not open them and delete immediately.


Finally I hope all our members enjoyed our recent edition of our online magazine.   Our Editor is always looking for content, so I would encourage any Sections to supply any articles, or information about what they are up to such as forth coming events to our Editor for inclusion in the next issue of our magazine.

Well, that’s all for this month.
