Saturday, 22 November 2014 09:05

We would like to remind everyone that all dogs need to be micro chipped by 2015.

It is estimated 190,000 dogs in Wales will need to be micro chipped before the March 2015 deadline.

Some charities offer the procedure for free but it costs about £20-£30 at a private veterinary clinic. It involves inserting a sterile chip the size of a grain of rice between a dog's shoulder blades.

Sadly, we have been forced to cancel this year’s Holt to Farndon Lantern Parade due to the fact that Cheshire police have informed us they no longer have the funding to cover such events, so on the Cheshire side of the bridge we can no longer get help with the safe control of the traffic. It has also proved to be a challenge this year to find local police on the Holt side to support the event for similar reasons.

With this, his second collection of observational poetry, both of these prerequisites are well and truly ticked.
