Kenneth is busy promoting dog chipping, leaving me to tell you about two feline families that arrived at SESAW recently.
A kind gentleman rescued Chilli, who had been living rough on an industrial estate, just before she gave birth to a litter of kittens. Sadly another pregnant puss lost some of her litter due to a viral infection, the others are now fighting for their lives. We are also expecting babies in the garden since the blue tits laid eggs in Ron’s new bird box. Fear not dear reader, my interest in our feather residents extends only to bird watching from the comfort of a sunny windowsill.
One of our SESAW friends, local wildlife guru George Millens, was on hand to offer advice at our Spring Sale in the Old School, Long Melford last month. Over £3200 was raised thanks to more than 200 visitors and our wonderful volunteers who helped make the event such a success. Another enjoyable day for all participants, we hope you will all return for the Christmas Fair on 20th November!
Barbara had a good day at her Bonanza Sale in Stratford St. Mary last month. The village gave SESAW a warm welcome and £445 was raised. Staunch Hadleigh supporters Peter and Julie Hedges with their dog Millie were among the many visitors. Over £3200 was raised at our Spring Sale in Long Melford thanks to more than 200 visitors and our wonderful volunteers who helped make the event such a success.

Arrive 7pm for 7.30pm start with a big raffle in the interval, licensed bar and free parking. Tickets £8 per head including hot supper (veggie option), phone 01206 263269 to book.
Whatever the weather, do come to our two day Bank Holiday Sale in the front garden, 10am to 1pm on 28th and 29th May. Gazeboes are at the ready to cover enough things to fill every house in the village including a very cosy cat bed that would be just right for me, Ollie (the Black) Cat.
