Yipee! I’m going to the Easter Fair on 1st April with my fellow chihuahua friend, Princess Poppy of Washbrook. She’s pretty as a picture and got a lovely nature, just like me! If you read this in time, do come visit us at Whatfield Village Hall, Rectory Road, IP7 6QU. It starts at 11am and there will be loads of Easter gifts and goodies, hand crafted items, jewellery, games, jigsaws, books, DVDs, a pet stall and Surprise Bags. Enjoy the snacks and refreshments while you wait for your number to be called in the big raffle – first prize a bespoke chocolate Easter Egg donated by the Hadleigh Maid Company (seen in the photo with Pumpkin, a friendly rabbit in need of a new home).
The Volunteers are happy to be returning to the Old School, Long Melford for our Spring Fair, 10-3pm on 23rd April. There will be the usual mix of SESAW stalls and independent crafters with a huge selection for all the family (including a Fathers’ Day table) and the pets. If you would like to hire a table for yourself phone 01206 263269 to book.
Regular readers will know all this fun and frivolity is to help the rescued animals at SESAW including a particular gentleman currently in our care. Fifteen year old Billy is a Jack Russell cross, desperately in need of a foster home since his owner died. He is friendly, healthy, enjoys walks but has to be the sole pet and SESAW would look after any veterinary care. I do hope there is someone out there to look after the old chap.
Our rabbit expert, Karen, will be talking to visitors at the Green Island Gardens and Nursery on Easter Sunday 16th April. Do say hello if you call in at Green Island Park Road, Ardleigh, CO7 7SP.
Mum says I should remind dog owners to keep Easter Eggs well away from their pets because chocolate is poisonous to us pooches, as are sultanas. That warning will dampen the spirits of my pal, Sugar Face, who was caught in mid bite of a cake last Christmas. He’s pretty good at pinching biscuits but the silly boy has yet to master the art of devouring the treats unseen.
That pesky cat, Ollie, is out and about now Spring is here, leaving me to write our news in peace but that’s all for now. I must get ready for the 1st April and I hope the joke is not on me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua!Come to the Easter Fair …..
