Ollie’s April News

Please share this!

At last that precocious Chihuahua is preoccupied, leaving the computer unguarded for me to write this month’s news from the feline point of view.   Most importantly, I must tell you about two cats, mother and daughter Fat Cat (I can hardly bring myself to type such a name!) and Betty.   They have been with us far too long and need a quiet, understanding household to help them overcome their timid natures.   A more dignified name for the mother wouldn’t go amiss either!   Kenny would have my guts for garters if I didn’t tell you we have dogs too but of course you already know that!  

The volunteers appreciated the warm spell in February but it was back to wellies and warm jackets as the rain trickles down the office window at time of writing.   Hopefully the Spring will be in full flourish for our Easter Fair at the Old School, Long Melford, CO10 9DX, 10-3pm on 14th April.   Lots of lovely items for friends, family and your pets, a big raffle and tombola, refreshments, free parking and only 50p admission.

We will be helping at the Nayland 10K on 30th June and hoping for good weather.   SESAW is one of the lucky charities being supported by this popular event which attracts many runners.   If you enjoy competing in a multi terrain course through areas of outstanding natural beauty, register via the website: Nayland 10k | Constable Country 10k, 5k & 1k fun run

The weather affects everything at the Sanctuary, especially our annual Open Day which has been hit by storms for the last two years.   Consequently some of our gazebos were damaged beyond repair and we are in need of new ones.   If you happen to know of a sturdy gazebo surplus to requirements we would gratefully give it a good home.   Now it’s time to accompany Mother on her evening rounds and then to bed next to a radiator for me, Ollie (the Black) Cat.
