Frances Harcourt-Brown - Owners' Day .. anticipation re 2016

Post by Big Ears on Sun Dec 21, 2014 11:29 am

Just thought I'd flag this up as a know a few members went to the RWAF conference so could potentially be interested... and those who didn't because it was too far to travel (but based 'up North') might be interested.

https://www.harcourt-brown.co.uk/rabbit-cpd/courses-for-owners

If it runs it will be at Hampsthwaite (Harrogate) which is fantastic for me.

It will be really fantastic if she does run this especially if there's enough interest for a course rather than a one-off.

I'm thinking along the lines of detailed information on how to check stasis bunnies for blockages/how to use blood glucose testing... whether or not to decide to do OOH at midnight or whether early morning will be okay.

Oh gosh I would have loved this if I could afford it but I am already doing a rabbit diploma course and that cost me a lot. Sad

The owners' one is only at the proposal stage at the moment so the prices haven't been published. I'm sure she realises that owners on the whole would be put off if it was the same cost as the vocational study cost. Time will tell, I'm just glad she's considering running it. If it is expensive we will have to nominate a rich friend to go and take notes Wink

Thumbs Up†It makes a refreshing change to have something like this 'up North' for a change.

This course is still by no means definite yet, FHB has yet to be convinced there is enough demand and is waiting to see how the vocational courses go first, but, she has told me that the owners course *if it runs* will be £40 ish. and would be a c5 hour stint on Saturday or Sunday. .... approximately the same price as one vaccination then Thumbs Up

I just hope there is enough demand for these courses as it is a reflection that rabbits matter... and they flipping do... there's enough of them as pets in this country so vets/owners should be interested in these kinds of courses.

I quite agree love, there are plenty of people who have bunnies already who still need educating as to their welfare as we sadly know. It would be great for more vets to be bunny savvy too.

I thought a lot more people would be showing interest as that's a really good price for this kind of event. Crying or Very sad

Thumbs Up†Thank you Love

I'm absolutely convinced there is demand for it and given previous feedback here I wondered if people were reluctant to put submissions forward when they thought it could be over £100 †.... knowing that it's weekend c5 hours (1.30 - 6.30) and c£40 I think that information would really help people get on board.

Two things to find out.
When is this happening?
How far is Harrogate from Gloucestershire?

My understanding is that no date has been set as yet. Harrogate is over in Yorkshire, nearer to me than you! You would be more than welcome to stay with me and travel across together if that made things easier Very Happy

Jo, you could travel half way to Gloucestershire and join me. We can share my car then. How about?

Oh sweetie, that is so very sweet of you and I appreciate it. The trouble is I am chronically car sick which is worse in someone else's car. You are a darling for offering though. I also have major mobility problems. Hugs

No Harrogate is too far for me as well. And there are no flights from Exeter or Bristol to Leeds Bradford airport ( although you can fly from Southampton Katie).

The times and prices were a definite, if it does run, so £40 for 1.30 - 6.30pm .... which is an excellent price for this kind of event
