BFBA

British Farriers & Blacksmiths Association

Join a BFBA Branch near you

The Association has many branches spread around the UK. These branches host meetings, CPD events, competitions and social gatherings throughout the year. It is a great opportunity to meet up with friends, share experiences and exchange knowledge – in addition to having a good time!

If there is not a Branch near you and you would like to set one up please contact Head Office in writing (letter or email).

You will need to provide - 

  • the name of the intended branch
  • the area which it will cover
  • the names of the proposed officers (Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer)
  • plus at least two other members names, ie a minimum of five names, all to be current members of the BFBA

The request is then taken to the next meeting of the EC for consideration.
