LATEST PUBLICATIONS HIT THE STREET

Since the Federation website was launched, it has attracted many enquiries on all manner of fishkeeping subjects.

Dear, of course, to the Federation's heart is any enquiry about the whereabouts of local Societies or how one might go about forming one.

The updated Booklet No 8 deals with this very subject and is now available from the FBAS Merchandising Officer (address below).

   Within its covers, you'll find
   advice on everything you
   need to know from generating
   a fishkeeping interest in your
   area to finding a place to
   meet.

    How to get the best services
   from the aquatic organisations
    and what to do if your Guest
   Speaker lets you down at the
   last minute.

   Could you organise a Table
    Show and how would you
    begin to fill a whole
    year's entertainment for your
   members?

   The answers are all here.



Booklet No 8 (updated edition) costs just 2.00
