Sadly the Social Badminton at Ally Park School has stopped. Does anyone know of any places locally where you can turn up to play without the hassle of booking a court and finding other people to play with? I'd be grateful!

Queenie a Jack Russell dog urgently needs a home

Queenie is a female Jack Russell, 13 years old, neutered and urgently needs a home. Her elderly owner is not able to look after her anymore and doesn't think Queenie would cope waiting in kennels for a home. Queenie needs a home with no other dogs or cats as she is not cat/dog friendly. Queenie is in good health for her age, apart from a little arthritis. If you might be able to help with a temporary foster home or permanent home, please contact Stokey Cats & Dogs by email…

Manju is about 2 years old, neutered, and seems to like other cats. If you…

The Friends are also encouraging locals whose gardens border the park to make hedgehog holes in…
