The North East Koi Club, was founded in 1975, as part of the British Koi Keepers Society [B.K.K.S.] and grew in strength alongside the “hobby”. Our membership covers the whole, North East of England, from as far South as Durham and Teeside, to the Borders of Scotland, a distance of 94 miles as the crow flies, and as far East from Sunderland, on the East Coast, to the Pennine Way, on the border with the Lake District. There are members, who have been with the club, since its foundation.
As with every other Koi club, members come from every walk of life, and their ponds come in every type of format used in Koi keeping, from “simple” liner ponds, to large professionally built Koi ponds, and indoor ponds. Members vary in their approach to Koi keeping, with some being more involved with the showing of Koi in the show environment, and those who prefer, to just “keep” beautiful Koi, and gardens.
The club has an ongoing friendship with other Koi clubs around the country, and frequently exchanges visits with them. Our monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month with regular guest speakers, and demonstrations.
Particularly for the newcomer, there is expert advice available in all matters regarding Koi, particularly construction, filtration and health. A major advantage is the expert access to Koi health Advice. This of course can be an advantage to even the experienced Koi keeper.
