Despite looking at ways we could keep the magazine going through these challenges times, logistics meant that it was not possible. We hope our readers understand that this decision was taken to ensure the wellbeing of our staff, those on the production line, and all of you at home, following the Government’s latest advice regarding Covid-19.
The April issue will be arriving in the post as normal, but we will not be publishing the May issue.
We will add one month to all subscriptions for the missed May issue, and keep you updated on the situation, which as we all know, is changing day to day.
We’d like to thank all of those that continue to support Fancy Fowl and our Editor Jed, and we look forward to continuing normal service as soon as possible.
We know that a number of people have had concerns about caring for their stock kept at allotments or away from home during the current Covid-19 pandemic.
Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for further updates:

N.B. in case you hadn’t seen it, we thought it might be useful to share this with you, from Cabinet Minister Michael Gove (correct as of 26/3/20):
"I think it’s perfectly sensible for people to go to an allotment."
"It’s in the very nature of allotments that there’s a safe distance between people who are working on an individual allotment.”
It’s also worth noting that farmers have been recognised as ‘key workers’ by the Government.
