A caged bird society is inviting members of the public to attend its auction raising money for new equipment.

The Dagenham Caged Bird Society has already received a number of donations including greenfinches, bullfinches and equipment ahead of the auction on March 21.

People who aren't members of the club will be able to buy or auction lots on the day, but to meet government legislation they will need to purchase day membership for £2. Under 16s go free.

Lots will incur a 10 per cent commission to the club if sold. The auction will be run under government guidelines with the Animal and Plant Health Agency been notified.

The event will be held at Wantz Hall, Rainham Road North, Dagenham.
