I am sorry to have to announce that Ralph Pegden our Membership Secretary and Editor has had to step down from his positions on the BKKS Committee for personal reasons.

In the interim period there will be some slight disruption to membership requests, but we hope these will be as short as possible.  I should also add, if any BKKS members would be willing to help out then we have two posts which are now vacant these being Membership Secretary and Editor.  If you are interested please email chairman@bkks.co.uk.

I am sure you all have seen the recent Social media posts, from various sources
with regard to the news about the outbreak of  Koi Herpes Virus (KHV)

Here is a link to the official Niigata site with the full current situation.


We all know that there is no guaranteed way to prevent KHV from coming in, but there are methods to help identify possible problems and we can only applaud those dealers who undertake these measures to help protect the UK hobbyist.

As a National body, the British Koi-Keepers Society provides support for the local Koi Clubs. We consider these Clubs are a vital part of the hobby and it should be our role to provide a central infrastructure to assist them wherever possible.
