We are based in the United Kingdom. Although the French Lop & it's counterpart the Dwarf Lop have been popular on the continent for many years it was not until the 1970s that they really gained recognition in Britain.

Both Breeds are catered for by one club The National French & Dwarf Lop Club It is the National Club that controls the destiny of both Breeds, being responsible for the Breed Standards, & compiling a list of judges qualified  to judge to those standards. In addition to the National Club there are also Regional Specialist  Clubs / Circles namely the Northern Lop Club. Also the following are Lop Circles. Midland, Southern, Scottish, Welsh, Yorkshire, East Anglia, Devon & Cornwall Lop Circles, who run shows for all the Lop Breeds.

Whilst the two breeds in Britain have one parent club to control their destinies their histories are very different.

The AGM will be held at Doncaster on Sunday January 23rd 2022 at 10am

Any proposals must be in the hands of the secretary by Friday 14th January. All proposals must be nominated & seconded by fully paid up members of the club.

Secretary's notes for October 2021

Hi Everyone

I for one am delighted to get back out to the shows again as I'm sure most of you are. The London was a great weekend to catch up with each other, it did feel just as it always does, well done to the show committee. We held the only real stock show this year & Hazel judged for us. Best Dwarf lop & BIS went to a smart young agouti belonging to Kevin Wakefield, best French went to Lorraine Dobson's adult agouti bfly, well done to you both. On the London side best French went to Gemma Bower's adult agouti & best dwarf to my young REW, well done Gemma, he did well for you in the lop challenges. As you all will know my youngster went on to become the London BIS rabbit which was a wonderful end to the weekend for me.

I am hoping to sort out a few stock shows for next year, our first show should be the spring SS held at the Southern Champs in early May. Then we have special 5*shows at "The Great British Rabbit Show" a 6*event, beginning of July, at Newark, hopefully this will be our YSS with adult support. Our judge for the special shows will be Susan Stephen. I have already requested the show at the London & hoping to sort the ASS in November, venue to be confirmed.

The AGM will be held as usual at The Bradford in January, announcement in January F&F, which we receive around Christmas time.

Hope you all have a great Christmas this year, after the non-event of 2020.  Stay safe everyone, it's still very much out there, sadly.

Secretary notes April 2021

Hi Everyone

April and starting to gradually come out of lockdown at last, hoping we will get to some actual shows maybe in the next few months, fingers crossed.

Meanwhile we had another virtual show alongside Carlisle rabbit club virtual on March 14th, thank you to Ros Waring for judging for us. Not a huge entry with 18 dwarfs & 9 Frenchies. BOB French & BIS Sarah & Hazel Elliott's steel bfly adult, BOB dwarf & RUBIS was my REW adult. Sarah & Hazel were also BIS in the Carlisle open show with their other adult French, & their Alaska was Best Fur, congratulations to you both. Well Done also to Leah Peck who was BOB Dwarf lop with her REW in the Carlisle open show.

Results for the Bradford virtual show, BOB French & RU best lop Sarah & Hazel again with their lovely steel bfly, BOB Dwarf & 3rd in the lop challenge was the REW of Forever & Solo, which was my best rabbit from the section I judged, a good win from 48 dwarf lops entered of which 27 were REWs!!

Sadly as the Southern champs has been cancelled again that would have been our next show, here's hoping the West Midlands champs can go ahead at the end of August, & we can hold the YSS

Hopefully see some of you during the summer, Paula. contact me by email paula@sprma.com tel 01942 493658 mob 07762 668829

Secretary's notes April 2020

Hi Everyone

On Lockdown whilst typing these notes & hoping by the time you read them we might be seeing some light at the end of the tunnel?

Our first show of the year was held at Carlisle on 8/3 just before the virus started to affect all our lives. We had a very good entry of both breeds. BIS & Best Dwarf lop was a REW adult belonging to Junior member Lucy Appleton, a repeat of last year! & RUBIS, Best French lop was a young agouti butterfly of Gemma Bower, well done to both of you. Gemma also was BOB French in the NLOP show & BOB, Best lop & RUBIS on the host show with a young agouti doe, litter sister to the butterfly, a brilliant day for Gemma’s 2 rabbits. BOB dwarf lop on the host show was the adult sooty fawn of Forever & Solo & BOB dwarf on the NLOP show was my REW adult.

The next show was to have been our Spring show at The Southern champs in May, but that has sadly had to be cancelled, so hopefully it will now be the Young stock show with Adult support, at the West Midlands Champs, last Sunday in August, followed by the London stock show in October.

Hoping you have all been staying safe through this difficult time & we will all come out the other side & start to pick up our lives again. Looking forward to getting back to some shows maybe in the summer & seeing everyone again.

Look after yourselves, Paula. Contact me on 07762 668829, email paula@sprma.com
