BEVA shares plans for 60th anniversary
"Our 60 faces initiative celebrates some of the many outstanding people who have left an indelible mark on the profession" - Huw Griffiths.

Horse owners are being encouraged to celebrate with their vet. 

The British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) has shared its plans for the celebration of its 60th anniversary.

In the build up to the anniversary on 18 November, BEVA will be highlighting 60 individuals who have had an impact on the equine veterinary sector.

BEVA is also encouraging horse owners to join in with the festivities, and celebrate by sharing birthday cakes with their veterinary professionals and practice.

The 60 people highlighted have been nominated by BEVA members, and the project showcases people from 16th Century humanist Thomas Blundeville to 21st Century media entrepreneur Ebony Escalona.

Huw Griffiths, BEVA president, commented on the celebrations: “Our 60 faces initiative celebrates some of the many outstanding people who have left an indelible mark on the profession and whose actions complement BEVA’s work in championing progress and/or diversity.

“It was a really tough challenge to whittle the list down to 60 people as all of the nominees were exceptional individuals.

“The list showcases some of the best-known names in the industry as well as some heroes whose stories are less well known or who have been consigned to history.

“It’s not a “Top 60”, nor are all the faces vets, but it does highlight the breadth of people who have impacted what we do.”

Each day for a month, BEVA will release two faces on its social media channels, as part of the build up to 18 November. The faces will also be published on the BEVA website.

Huw added: “We hope you will enjoy reading about them and we hope our lovely clients will join in the celebrations during the week starting 18 November by sharing a celebratory piece of birthday cake with their cherished horse vet!”

Several other cases of H5N1 avian influenza have also been confirmed in recent days at sites in Essex, Cheshire and Cumbria. On Monday (22 November), the disease was identified near Wells-next-the-Sea, North Norfolk.
