Ollie (the Black) Cat was caught napping recently when two ladies called in to see him. Unlike me, he hides himself away from visitors and was surprised to be discovered atop the hay where he keeps watch! And there’s plenty to see lately, Mum says we have converted to running a franchise for Noah and his Ark as the animals have been coming two by two. There’s Patch and Missie, a friendly pair of scruffy Jack Russells, several pairs of rabbits looking for gardens to occupy rather than tiny hutches, and one year old sibling cats Nancy and Ronnie. Ollie says they are a bit bemused and nervous at the moment, wondering why they are shut up in a cattery but they will be fine when re-homed.
The Fundraisers enjoyed another warm welcome from Whatfield residents at our Easter Fair which raised £1000 last month. I enjoyed meeting lots of people (and Princess Poppy of Washbrook, see our photo!) Thank you to Hadleigh Maid for donating a big chocolate Easter egg, top prize in our raffle.
Our craft ladies will have a stall at Gladwells Charity Open Day, Copdock Mill, Old London Road, Copdock, IP8 3LA, 9am on 13th May. Our Summer Sale on 3rd June from 10.30am at St.Luke’s Church Hall, Church Street, Tiptree, CO5 0SU. After all that activity, relax at our Summer Dance, 1st July at Assington Village Hall, CO10 5LW, tickets via firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01206 263113
The waters have receded so please visit the animals soon but don’t take on a pet on a whim, it is a serious business involving years of committed dedication. Animals are just as much of a responsibility as children, even a little dog like me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
