The Northern Goldfish and Pondkeepers Society (NGPS) was founded in 1959. It caters
 for people who are interested in keeping and breeding all forms of Fancy Goldfish.

  The Society is proud of it’s northern roots but membership now covers all of the country and  abroad; members are welcome from all areas. The NGPS is one of the country’s top specialist  fish societies and membership is essential for all those seriously interested in Goldfish.

 All aspects of Goldfish history, husbandry,breeding and showing are covered, live fish are often  featured, visiting speakers attend and society visits are arranged in a friendly, informed  atmosphere.  Members have access to rare goldfish varieties that just can’t be bought in the  shops.   The Society has extensive contacts with breeders and institutions nationally and  internationally, especially in the Far East and uniquely holds in Britain part of the Chinese  National Goldfish Collection.   Occasional foreign ‘Goldfish’ holidays are arranged for members,  the last  were to Hong Kong and Japan in the spring of 2004 and Singapore in the summer of  2007.

  The Northern Goldfish and Pondkeepers Society meets at the Church Inn, Church Lane,
 Prestwich, Manchester on the second Tuesday of every month at 8pm.

 There is no requirement to attend the meetings, though this is undoubtedly the way to get  maximum benefit from membership and all meetings minutes along with articles and features  are included in the monthly Newsletter  (on-line or sent to all members). An annual open
 show is held every year in Manchester on the second Saturday in September at
 St. Matthews Church Hall, Chester Road, Stretford, Manchester.  
 Members who show their fish can win awards, as judged by accredited Coldwater Fish judges.

 This is the website of the Northern Goldfish
 and Pondkeepers Society in a format designed  for computers or tablets.
