Have your say

WE would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped us raise funds for Trinity Hospice. We have some very loyal supporters without whom we could not continue our fundraising.

On April 8, we presented Trinity Hospice fundraising manager Lisa Martin with a cheque for £4,500. The money was raised over the last 12 months at our numerous events. Our group’s youngest member, Becky McVeigh presented the cheque on behalf of the group.

We started this year’s fundraising with our spring fair which raised £530. It was a great start to our year. Thank you to everyone who supported the event. Our next fundraising event is at 7.30pm on Friday, May 27, at United Reformed Church Hall, Dronsfield Road, Fleetwood.

It is a Pampered Chef evening. Tickets cost £1.50 which includes refreshments. There will be a cooking demonstration and a chance to buy kitchen and cooking equipment.

If anyone would like more information about the group or would like to purchase tickets for the evening ring Joanne on (01253) 874870 or Caroline on 826973.

Same old story. People say they can’t afford to get their cats neutered or dog neutered.

Many such people keep affording their fags, lottery tickets, beer, nice mobile phones, backing the horses, sauntering off on a nice holiday abroad, maybe going to bingo, etc.

Even many on benefits aren’t doing that badly.

An unneutered female cat, via her offspring over a period of five years, will have been responsible for 20,000 or so cats being born.

Some animal rescues and some posters of comments always seem to spout out invalid comments condoning selfish, irresponsible pet owners who don’t neuter their pets, and offer sympathy to those who abandon pets, dump pets.

This is always going to be the same old story.


It really annoys me that people don’t take responsibility for their pets, I am not aware of neutering being free, however, I do know there are vouchers available and it doesn’t cost much to get the cats done and therefore keep the population down.

Must be annoying for these places to be constantly inundated with calls on a daily basis.
