Christmas Greetings from the Chair…..

On behalf of the British Goat Society I would like to wish all our members and visitors to
our website the very best for Christmas and the New Year. It has been a difficult and
stressful year for everyone, and Christmas is going to be hard for some of us who will not
be able to see families and loved ones.
Those of us who are fortunate enough to keep goats have certainly felt the benefit of our
charges to help keep our minds off the situation, and to give us a sense of normality
during the time that we are with our animals. But even those of us who are goatless have,
I am sure, benefited from the support and friendship that is such a feature of the goat
The BGS office will be closed from close of business on Wednesday 23 rd December until
Monday 4th January, and the email and telephone services will not be manned during that
Happy Christmas to you all. I am sure that the New Year is going to be a better one, and
that in the coming months we will at last be amongst each other again.
Nick Parr
Chairman of the Committee.
