FOSTER parents needed. Do you care enough to help? Short-term fosterers for dogs and cats are urgently wanted whilst their elderly or terminally-ill owners are in hospital.
Also dog-walking for people who are too frail to manage and hate the thought of giving up a muchloved pet which may be their only companion. Please check out cinnamon.org.uk or call 01736 757900.
FLY-TIPPING: Is unacceptable at the best of times, and certainly not in the car park for the Riley Lane cemetery.
If you do come across heaps of rubbish, call the borough council on 01256 844844.
